Changes to WA fines and penalties

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by Duffman, Dec 5, 2006.

  1. Looky HERE

    List of changes to WA road infringements, fines and demerit points.

    These changes have really confused me. Basically they are reducing the penalties for a whole lot of really dangerous things.

    For example:

    Not obeying traffic lane arrows - fine stays same, demerit points reduced.
    Not giving way to pedestrians at pedestrian crossing - points reduced.
    Blocking "Keep Clear" markings on roads - reduced to NO points!

    WTF prompted this and what dickhead came up with it?
