Default Radar Detectors Banned in ALL of Australia.

Full article at https://www.coastlive.com.au/news/lo...dar-detectors/

"Western Australian drivers are being warned to remove radar detectors from their vehicles before October 12 or face tough new penalties.
...

Drivers caught with a radar detector fitted to their car or other light vehicle - operational or not - will be issued with a $1200 on the spot infringement and seven demerit points.

Drivers of a truck or other heavy vehicle will receive a $1500 infringement and seven demerit points.

On a double demerit point long weekend, this would result in a loss of licence."

Comments attributed to Police and Road Safety Minister Michelle Roberts:

"It's taken Western Australia 20 years to catch up with the rest of the country, but I'm pleased we have at long last been able to ban radar detectors.

"We are deliberately giving people plenty of warning before these new penalties come into effect.

"If you've got one of these devices on your vehicle, then get rid of it.

"For years the Liberals ignored this important area of road safety policy, designed to save lives.

"These devices have always been about enabling people to speed without being caught and I'm really glad this Government is putting a stop to it."
