New legislation which allows police to issue instant loss of licenses has passed the House of Assembly in South Australia.
In Australian-first legislation, the Road Traffic (Drug Driving and Careless or Dangerous Driving) Amendment Bill 2021, will enable SAPOL to issue instant loss of licences after a positive roadside drug test. In addition, instant loss of licences will apply in relation to the offence of excessive speed regardless of whether the offence is expiated, or the driver is being charged, and for reckless and dangerous driving. The Bill will now move to the Legislative Council for debate.View PDF
