Police suspend mass random breath testing in some states amid coronavirus outbreak

Police in several Australian states have stopped conducting stationary, large-scale random breath tests and drug tests in an effort to protect both officers and the public from transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Police forces in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland this week confirmed their officers will avoid carrying out high-volume booze bus testing, instead relying on targeted testing to catch those driving under the influence.

(Self) drivers wanted: Canberra autonomous test program seeking participants

Seeing Machines is seeking 30 test drivers to get involved in a new self-driving trial in Canberra. The trial is designed to improve on the company's driver-monitoring technology, which currently features in the Cadillac CT6 (pictured). Rather than focusing on the car, it'll focus on how self-driving systems impact driver behaviour.

Queensland uni to study P-plater and parent relationship

The Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety Queensland (CARRS-Q) will soon kick off a study into the role that parents play in P-plater driver training in the ACT. The research centre chose the nation’s capital for the study because its graduated driver licensing (GDL) program is less restrictive than in other regions.

ACT government looks to reduce local speed limit to 40km/h

ACT Minister for Transport, Jon Stanhope, is urging Canberrans to have their say on whether speeds limits around busy retail and commercial precincts should be reduced to improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. Canberrans have until Friday December 18 to provide feedback on whether the 40 km/h speed limit, which currently applies in school zones, should be expanded to other areas of the ACT such as shopping centres and community facilities.
