Road Policing

Safety on our roads

Road safety is an area of significant priority for Victoria Police and partner organisations.

Ensuring the safety of road users requires the committment of a considerable amount of police resources.

Along with partner organisations, Victoria Police provides specialist and support services to ensure road users are as safe as possible while using Victoria's roads.

A significant part of Victoria Police's partnership approach to road safety is close coordination with other agencies and service providers, including federal, state and local government as well as non-government organisations. 

Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy

Victoria Police's Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan 2013-2018 provides the direction for Victoria Police for the next five years for reducing road trauma and enhancing community safety on our roads.

Safety Camera Program

The Safety Camera Program is an integral part of Victoria Police's commitment to road safety. Victoria Police aims to provide a safe environment for all road users.

Hoon Laws

Anti-hoon laws are about making roads safer and reducing road trauma. They were introduced in Victoria in July 2006 to give police the power to impound, immobilise or permanently confiscate vehicles driven by people in a dangerous manner.
