Broadmeadows, postcode 3047, was one of the first to get their taste of roadblocks, with Victoria Police setting up a booze-bus roadblock on Camp Road.
Police are selecting vehicles to pull over and are then being questioned by officers.
Police Minister Lisa Neville said on Wednesday that residents stopped would be asked where they are going and their reason for travel.
