“We ask for people just to be responsible in regard to the way that they act, especially on the roads,” Sr Sgt Bickley said.

“And especially when using alcohol.”

Transit police and Protective Services Officers will also be at train stations in Geelong to make sure revellers get to and from their destinations safely.
