Tough new laws for street racing 

Street racers in South Australia face tough penalties with the passing of new laws.

The legislation under the Statutes Amendment (Driving Offences) Act 2010 lifts illegal street racing on our streets from being a traffic offence to a criminal offence. 

Key points of the new laws:

-a maximum penalty of up to three years jail and one year’s loss of licence for the basic offence of street racing 
-a subsequent street racing offence will attract a maximum penalty of five years jail and a minimum loss of licence for three years 
-if an offender causes death or serious harm while street racing, they’ll now face a maximum penalty of life imprisonment 
-anyone who promotes or assists in staging a street race will also be subject to these tough new laws.
Driving hoons pose a danger to themselves, to their passengers, other road users and pedestrians. Under the new laws they will be treated as serious criminals.

you missed the point I was trying to make Dave........yes I understand that you could possibly go to jail for it, but what I was trying to say was what mechanisms are in place to stop a cop from charging you with ANY offence, even if you are innocent.......things like DUI or driving on drugs, the mechanisms in place are breathalysers or swabs or blood tests.......but what is in place to stop you from being charged with an offence you didnt commit ??? ...Nothing.
