The Victorian government announced on the 15th that it will introduce more stringent penalties for drink-driving, imposing penalties of suspension of driver’s license and car arrest on drivers whose blood alcohol concentration is higher than 0.10.

At the same time, drivers who violate the regulations will also be fined A$627 and their driving license will be suspended for 10 months. According to the new traffic regulations, more than 3500 vehicles are expected to be detained each year. Moreover, even if the driver is not the owner, the vehicle will still be detained.

Victorian Assistant Commissioner of Police Robert Hill said that the new traffic regulations will remove drivers who violate the law and discipline. "We promise that we will never tolerate drivers who put themselves and other people’s lives in danger. Drinking and driving are two behaviors. Drivers and friends are asked not to mix together. If you drink, do not drive, either by bus or by bus. Taxi, or find a driver to go home."

据悉,在2013年,有多达3750名第一次违反交规的司机血液酒精浓度高于0.10。这项新交规是《道路安全法》2014年修正案的一部分,将从今年8月1日起生效。
