Don't drop the pizza

A man was allegedly caught drink driving with an unrestrained child in the back of his car in Caulfield on Friday night, Victoria Police say.

Prahran Highway Patrol officers intercepted a car on Glen Eira Road about 10pm after it was allegedly spotted driving with no headlights on in wet conditions.

The male driver was allegedly observed attempting to swap to the front passenger seat, while a female passenger tried to get into his seat.

The transfer was made a little harder as the woman was holding a box of pizza.

It is also alleged a five-year-old girl was lying on the backseat without her seatbelt on.

The 33-year-old Carnegie man underwent an evidentiary breath test and returned an alleged blood alcohol content reading of .178 per cent.

The car was immediately impounded at a cost of $905.

He is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving and other traffic-related offences.

The impound forms part of Operation Nexus, a state-wide road safety focus for all police until Anzac Day.

Police will target speed, fatigue, distraction, seatbelt non-compliance and impaired driving in an effort to reduce road trauma and raise awareness around road user behaviour.

The operation runs for 13 days from 0001 hours Thursday 13 March until 2359 hours Tuesday 25 April.
