MANSFIELD Highway Patrol and general duties officers were kept extremely busy over the Easter four day Operation Nexus period.
Acting Sergeant Scott Woodstock said traffic was horrendous – both coming into and again leaving Mansfield – and patrol officers were kept on their toes with accidents.
Police have also called for public assistance in locating a motorcyclist that was clocked at 158kmh on the Benalla-Mansfield Road on Easter Sunday.
Act Sgt Woodstock said the motorcyclist passed a police car – travelling in the opposite direction – at 158kmh but was later detected near Swanpool travelling at 212kmh and again a third time at a higher speed.
The motorcyclist failed to stop for police and was also observed crossing double white lines and overtaking other vehicles while in pursuit.
