Dangerous Driving

Council participated in the Legislative Assembly’s Justice and Community Safety Standing Committee on Dangerous Driving, through both a Submission and participation in hearings on 26 October 2022. The Legislative Assembly website contains Council’s submission (https://www.parliament.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/2092822/019-Weston-Creek-Community-Council.pdf)and video recording and transcripts from the hearings (https://www.hansard.act.gov.au/Hansard/10th-assembly/Committee-transcripts.htm#5_jcs). The Government has already announced some changes to the laws around dangerous driving (see: https://www.cmtedd.act.gov.au/open_government/inform/act_government_media_releases/gentleman/2022/driving-reform-to-make-canberra-roads-safer).”

Council’s participation in the Inquiry was prompted by the continuous feedback received about the extent of dangerous driving on local roads and the lack of visible police presence.”
