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.

Northern Territory to axe open speed limits

The newly-elected Northern Territory government has vowed to get rid of the open speed limits on sections of the Stuart Highway. NT’s newly-elected Labor party said it would reintroduce the 130km/h speed limits in the coming months after its landslide victory in last weekend’s election, undoing the two-year trial implemented by the former Country Liberal government.

2008 Road toll figures lowest in 59 years

The final road toll figures for 2008 have been released, setting last year's record at 1463 road casualties. This is a reduction of 153 deaths over 2007 and 135 over 2006. The good news is this is the best year on record since 1949, it sounds even better when you take into consideration that there are 11 times more vehicles on the road today than back then.
