New Laws Will Mean Tougher Penalties For Drug Drivers In Western Australia

New laws mean drug drivers will face automatic bans if they’re caught driving while on drugs.

The change closes a loophole which allows drug-affected drivers to stay on the road until they face court. Drink drivers are suspended immediately. 

The laws are part of a suite of laws being developed by the WA state government to help keep dangerous drivers off the road.

The soon-to-be introduced legislation will also include penalties for those who test positive to both drugs and alcohol.
