A total of 19 officers took part in the operation in the bayside suburb.

Wellington Point residents have complained of hooning, drug taking, littering and aggressive behaviour from car enthusiasts gathering at the point.

Field Commander Senior Sergeant Tony Brown said the operation was part of Bayside Police's proactive Easter road safety campaign and included static roadside breath and drug testing.

"Three persons charged for exceeding the breath alcohol limit," he said.

"Two persons charged for driving under the influence of drugs (and) nine traffic infringements issued."

"On a positive note, this means that 1069 drivers did the right thing and can be congratulated on keeping our roads safe for all road users and 1065 vehicles were suitably legal and safe," Senior Sergeant Brown said.

"Overall those figures are positive, but even one driver failing a breath or drug test is not acceptable."
