Victoria Police Minister Moves To Block Legal Challenges By Drunk, Drugged Drivers

Police Minister Wade Noonan has moved to block more than 1100 alcohol or drug affected drivers from mounting legal challenges to their penalties, after it was revealed that hundreds of police officers had performed the tests without authorisation. He said the retrospective legislation was a matter of last resort but had to be introduced as there was “a risk that legitimate prosecutions and infringements for drink and drug driving that rely on evidence obtained through these tests could fail on a technicality.”
