People caught drink driving will now lose their licence immediately for three months, after tough new laws came into effect on Monday.
The NSW Government announced earlier this month that anyone caught low-range drink driving (0.05 to 0.079) will lose their licence on the spot. The loss of licence will be coupled with a $561 fine.
Drivers found with drugs in their system will face the same penalties if the offence is confirmed by laboratory analysis.
Roads Minister Andrew Constance said at the time of the announcement that NSW was taking a "zero-tolerance" approach to drink and drug-driving.
"This means anyone caught drink-driving in NSW, at any level, including low-range, can now lose their licence immediately," the minister said.
"This reform makes it clear if you break the law, you will pay the price. We are taking a zero-tolerance approach to drink and drug driving."
Further information about the drink driving reforms for low range offences can be found on the Roads and Maritime Services website.
