The Associate Minister of Transport, Hon Julie Anne Genter, introduced the Land Transport (Drug Driving) Amendment Bill into Parliament on 30 July 2020.
The Bill proposes a new random roadside oral fluid (saliva) testing regime. Under the new regime, a police officer would be able to stop any driver of a motor vehicle and administer an oral fluid test without good cause to suspect a driver has consumed drugs, consistent with the existing approach to drink driving enforcement.
