New drink driving legislation comes into effect today.

Laws some of the toughest in the country

New drink driving legislation comes into effect today.

New drink driving laws are coming into effect today in Victoria and will be the toughest in the country.

 

The TAC tightened up the laws for people recording readings between 0.05 and 0.069, those returning these readings will lose their license for a minimum of 6 months

 

The loss of license comes regardless if it's your first offense.

 

From today, those caught drink driving will face mandatory interlock conditions for a minimum of 6 months.

 

The changes will also see all drink and drug drivers required to participate in a behaviour change program.

 

The new laws will also affect interstate drivers coming into Victoria and applying for a licence in the State.

 

The legislation changes are all a part of the State Government's "Towards Zero" strategy; the $1.1 billion strategy to reduce the number of lives lost on our roads by 2020.
