Mo­bile phone penalty re­view

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

WA is con­sid­er­ing fol­low­ing New South Wales in adopt­ing a five- de­merit point penalty for mo­torists caught us­ing their mo­bile phones while driv­ing. The penalty, which comes into ef­fect in NSW in Septem­ber, will in­crease from three de­merit points. The Road Safety Com­mis­sion is hold­ing a wide- rang­ing re­view of penal­ties for a range of driv­ing of­fences. “We need to work out what’s re­ally go­ing to change peo­ple’s be­hav­iour, so I’m keen to en­sure any change to penal­ties is based on sound ad­vice from the Road Safety Com­mis­sion,” Road Safety Min­is­ter Michelle Roberts said.
