Sergeant Mark Barby says it's a timely warning when hiring buses to make sure they are roadworthy before you head off.

He says these buses were full of patrons and it was extremely dangerous to be driving such a long distance from Melbourne to Dunkeld in unroadworthy buses.

Police say patrons generally were well behaved at the Dunkeld races except for a couple of minor incidents.
