Brimbank police impounded 14 vehicles during the AFL grand final long weekend.
During a 30-minute period on Thursday, September 26, police impounded four vehicles at Keilor Lodge.
Between noon and 12.30pm, police pulled over a green BMW wanted for a number of evade police incidents on the Calder Freeway.
A 19-year-old man was arrested, interviewed and released, but is expected to be charged on summons with driving offences.
A short time later a 48-year-old man was clocked doing 128km/h in a 70km/h zone on Green Gully Road.
Police attempted to pull over the vehicle but the driver refused and fled.
Eventually the Taylors Lakes man pulled over and his car was impounded.
A motorcyclist also had his bike impounded after being caught doing 130km/h in an 80km/h zone on the Calder Freeway.
The fourth driver had his car impounded after being nabbed doing 117km/h in a 70km/h zone on Green Gully Road.
There were a number of other offences committed across the weekend.
Police wrote tickets for 194 speeding offences, 46 disobey signs/signals, 15 disqualified drivers, 17 drug drivers and two drink drivers.
Thirty unregistered vehicles, 22 mobile phone offences and five unlicensed drivers were also detected.
The four-day operation was conducted across the entire state, with a number of offences, particularly drink and drug driving, detected by police.
Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said it was disappointing to see so many people make the conscious decision to drink or take drugs and get behind the wheel of a car across the state.
“Everyone wants to have a good time on the footy grand final weekend, but unfortunately due to poor choices some people were either hit with a fine, lost demerits or had their car impounded,” he said.
“Saying this, the majority of people did the right thing and were able to enjoy the weekend for all it had to offer.
“But we must remember the families and extended communities of the two people who lost their lives.”
Across the state police detected 8702 traffic offences and 746 crime offences during the four days of the operation.
Police performed 110,209 preliminary breath tests and 3161 drug tests in the four
