Victoria Police will keep a close eye on drivers this summer as it launches its Summer Stay campaign.

The two-month blitz will start on Friday in a bid to reduce road trauma over the holiday season.

Officers will conduct breath and drug tests, check speed and target fatigue and driver distraction, including seatbelt offences.

Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill says everyone needs to focus on road safety to reduce road trauma.

"Victoria Police has had a commitment to combating road trauma and has been pushing the road safety message from as far back as the 1950s and this year will be no different," Hill says.

"Although we currently have the lowest road toll on record, we can’t be complacent.

"This is why we will have police saturating the roads and concentrating on those behaviours which are known to contribute to road trauma."
