The Land Transport Amendment Bill has passed its first reading on a voice vote and been referred to the Transport and Industrial Relations Committee.

This bill will strengthen the legislation relating to alcohol interlocks, strengthen the framework for managing public transport fare evasion, create more effective deterrents to reduce the incidence of fleeing drivers, make changes to heavy vehicle regulation, change the regulatory framework for small passenger services, and make a range of minor amendments to ensure that the Land Transport Act 1998 is clear and operating as intended.
