Member for Monaro John Barilaro has welcomed reforms to toughen sanctions on those who repeatedly ignore driver licence laws, while also providing incentives for disqualified drivers who demonstrate good behaviour.
Mr Barilaro says under the new laws Police will have extra powers to confiscate on-the-spot the number plates or cars of repeat offenders for three to six months.
Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight Melinda Pavey says tough penalties will continue to apply for very serious driving offences, like drink and drug driving.
Lengthy disqualification periods, which can currently exceed 10 years, are often ineffective because they've been found to offer no incentive to disqualified drivers to comply with their penalty.
The change aims to encourage a return to lawful driving, as opposed to the current laws that impact the disadvantaged.

Bombala will benefit from a $7million injection for the upgrade of the Bombala Sewage Treatment Plant.

$3.5 million was secured through the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Council will contribute the other $3.5 million, and aims to deliver major outcomes for local residents.

Administrator for Council Dean Lynch says the project represents the largest infrastructure spend in Bombala for many, many years.

The scope of the infrastructure upgrades will include storm flow treatments, electrical switch room and mechanical works, including pipes, pumps and valves.
