Residents are also advised to check the VicRoads website for road closures. 

The City of Greater Bendigo estimates that 1,100 road defects are present in Greater Bendigo alone.

 
Meanwhile, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) has launched a powerful road safety campaign, “The Lucky Ones Get Caught”, to reduce the road tolls in Country Victoria.

“I think the campaign provides a stark reminder that people are lucky to be caught by police for doing the wrong thing, rather than being killed or seriously injured.”
