House will debate roadside sobriety testing
The House of Assembly will today debate the introduction of roadside breath test checkpoints.
The Road Traffic (Road Sobriety Checkpoints) Amendment Act will allow the senior magistrate to authorise police officers to carry out roadside breath tests in a bid to combat drink driving.
Walter Roban, the Minister of Transport, said last month that the public would get advance warning, and that the checkpoints would be “highly visible” to alert drivers.
MPs will also discuss the Insurance Amendment Act 2018, brought by David Burt, the Premier and Minister of Finance.
