The effect of sanctions on Victorian speeding drivers
Submission Date: 2019
Speeding is a major contributor to deaths and serious injuries. To assist in speed countermeasure development, an examination of speeding offenders’ characteristics, re-offence and casualty crashes during and after periods of licence sanctions was undertaken. These analyses aimed to determine the effects of the following sanctions: licence bans; the increase in speeding ban periods and demerit points for higher level speeding offences; additional demerit point bans for high-range offenders in addition to a 12-month speeding ban; and the good behaviour bond available as an alternative to licence suspension after reaching the demerit point threshold.
