Ballarat's top cop Superintendent Jenny Wilson is reminding locals to take care when travelling on our roads.

Police were called to three separate fatalities on Sunday and yesterday, which has seen our local road toll skyrocket to ten deaths this year alone, and a total of 77 across the state.

Yesterday Police announced Operation Kinetic which will see police focus on various hot spots around Victoria for 10 weeks in an effort to reduce poor driver behaviour and the number of fatalities on local roads.

Superintendent Jenny Wilson today is pleading with drivers to follow the road rules and minimise distractions while driving, saying accidents can happen to anyone.
