Highway Patrol takes a rare fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the working lives of the Australian police officers who spend their days striving to keep our roads safe. From high-speed chases to violent conflicts and catching speeding drivers to investigating crash scenes, officers of the Victoria Police Traffic Units spend each day on the front line. As part of their job, the officers featured in Highway Patrol deal with drunken hooligans, defiant law breakers and simply lazy motorists, and they all pose an equal danger to themselves and others. These officers are passionate about their work, proud of what they do on a daily basis and invite viewers into their remarkable world in Highway Patrol.

Then, when Senior Constable Byrnes pulls over an unregistered car the driver attempts to do a runner.
A driver is caught doing 126kph in an 80 zone, and the Senior Constable soon discovers the car is also unregistered and has the wrong number plates.

A driver behaving badly is pulled over and decides to keep drinking, even though he's being breath tested! Two Senior Constables are on the tail of an unregistered bike.

Then, a driver caught speeding is so angry he speeds off from the intercept, giving himself another ticket.
