Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

SINCE 2009, if you are caught driving af­ter you’ve lost your li­cence, WA po­lice will im­pound the car on the spot for a pe­riod of 28 days, not mat­ter who it be­longs to. This means that if you lend your car to an un­li­censed driver, it's your car that will be im­pounded. This law will take into ef­fect in ad­di­tion to ex­ist­ing penal­ties. – Sergeant War­ren Ame­duri
