NSW to crack down on drug driving

The New South Wales Government has announced a crack down on drug driving in the state, strengthening current legislation and boosting roadside drug testing. According to Premier Gladys Berejiklian, 392 people lost their lives on NSW roads in 2017, with preliminary data indicating drug-affected drivers were a major contributing factor in 36 fatal accidents during that period - resulting in 42 fatalities. "This summer has been a tragic time for too many on our roads,” Ms Berejiklian said.

NSW govt cracks down on P-platers: phone use banned for P1 and P2 drivers - UPDATE

A spike in fatal road accidents this year has prompted the New South Wales government to introduce several changes to the Graduated Licensing Scheme for learner, P1 and P2 drivers. Described as an effort to better prepare young drivers for real-world road hazards and reducing the NSW road toll, particularly among P-platers, the changes will gradually take effect between December 2016 and November 2017.

With a year-to-date road toll of 177 - up from 142 for the same period in 2015 - the NSW government is investing millions of dollars in targeted initiatives to address issues such as speeding, phone-distracted pedestrians and road signage.
