It took police just 45 minutes to clock seven drivers speeding through Trafalgar this morning.

The Princes Highway’s speed limit through the centre of the town is 60km/h, but divers were recorded travelling at up to 105km/h.
A Warragul Police spokesperson said the 105km/h driver lost their license for six months as a result.
It has been a busy few days for police working Trafalgar’s stretch of highway. On Thursday, a Hallam man was booked for travelling at 136km/h though Trafalgar East’s 110km/h zone.
A spokesperson for that incident said officers “were disappointed with the majority of the cars passing the intercept not slowing to 40 km/h.”
New laws require drivers to slow to 40km/h when passing stopped or slowly moving emergency vehicles with flashing lights or sirens on.
