Committee recommends waiving some speeding fines incurred in Northbourne Avenue 40kph zone

An ACT Legislative Assembly inquiry has recommended waiving speeding fines for some of the many motorists caught out after speed limits were reduced to 40 kilometres per hour in parts of Canberra's city centre last year.
A committee appointed to consider a petition lodged by affected motorists has recommended fines be waived for drivers only where they have resulted in financial hardship or similar circumstances.

The report further recommended the ACT government also proceed with its plan to lower the speed limit to 40 kilometres an hour across other parts of Canberra to reduce the number of accidents and crashes in areas of high pedestrian activity.
