Radar detectors could be banned
The Government wants to ban motorists from having radar detectors in their vehicles.
It is part of a road safety strategy the police and Transport Safety Minister Harry Duynhoven have released today. They want to make it illegal for drivers to use the radars, which alert motorists when a police car is nearby.
Under the proposal, the ban would be phased in over two years, and once it is fully in place drivers found to be using a radar will be fined $150.00 and receive 75 demerit points.
A driver would lose their licence once they received a total of 100 demerit points.
