Cameras and on-the-spot fines: making NSW roads safer
Lois Lee | 승인 2018.02.08 14:15

New Road Safety Plan for NSW roads was introduced on Tuesday to enforce safer driving and address speeding, drink driving, drug driving, driver distraction, driver fatigue, and truck safety. 

This plan aims to reduce the number of road deaths in 2018, after it was released that 392 people died on NSW roads in 2017. 

One initiative includes changing the law so that camera technology can be used to detect and enforce mobile phone distraction amongst drivers. 

“Every 41 minutes in NSW someone is either killed or seriously injured on our roads, leaving families and friends with the heartache,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said. 

“This plan makes it clear if you break the law you will be caught and will pay the price,” she added. 
The plan includes higher emphasis on drink driving. 

The police will be given power to issue on-the-spot fines and license suspensions for low-range drink driving. 

For the mid-range drink driving offenders, there will be a mandatory alcohol interlock program fitted into their car’s ignition system. The interlock, which is a breath testing device, will only let the vehicle start once the driver provides a negative sample. 

In addition, 11 additional heavy vehicle average speed camera locations will be introduced in Sydney. 
Further, the government will launch a review into driving on prescription drugs in April 2018.
