Police doing all they can out there

IT WAS so disheartening to hear police saying 'their best wasn't good enough' in the aftermath of six deaths on our roads in 41 hours over the Labour Day long weekend.

Our police can't totally control nor be held responsible for the actions of road users.

Our police force does a fantastic job in working to uphold the laws of our roads.

You have to wonder how many more fatalities, crashes and serious injuries could have taken place throughout the long weekend if such a police presence wasn't on hand.

It's disappointing Bendigo would be deemed such a 'high risk' area that extra police would be sent to the region to protect the roads.

Our police can't totally control nor be held responsible for the actions of road users.

In the end, driver attention and responsibility are the two biggest factors that can go a long way to stopping these type of road tragedies.

Police and the Transport Accident Commission have hammered home this point week after week - it just doesn't get through to everyone.

Amazingly, we then have people such as those abusing police at roadblocks on the Calder Freeway on Monday as CFA volunteers worked to extinguish a fire sparked after a car was engulfed in flames. 

Let's hope that upon reflection, these drivers might see the error of their ways.

Please be responsible out there!
