Radar detectors now banned in WA
Drivers of vehicles fitted with radar detectors will now be hit with heavy penalties.
New laws prohibiting radar detectors bring WA into line with all other jurisdictions around the country, the last of which banned the devices two decades ago.
Drivers caught with a radar detector fitted to their car or other light vehicle – operational or not – will be issued with a $1200 on the spot infringement and 7 demerit points.
Drivers of a truck or other heavy vehicle will receive a $1500 infringement and 7 demerit points. On a double demerit point long weekend, this would result in a loss of licence.
