He will also be charged on summons with traffic offences.

Wangaratta Highway Patrol Acting Senior Sergeant Michael Connors said police are determined to stamp out reckless behaviour on Victorian roads.

“It’s extremely disappointing to see such dangerous driver behaviour in the lead up to Christmas,” A/S/Sgt Connors said.
