He was one of 17 people caught in the busy St. Kilda school zone in the first hour of the operation.

Police say that this is a basic safety issue (more than a speeding issue alone) and that they are stunned that many of the driver's caught speeding were in fact dropping their own children at the school.

Police will continue to target drivers speeding past Victorian schools periodically all year.
