This Issues Paper considers options for reform that may improve the effectiveness of the criminal justice response to drink drivers in Tasmania, by exploring sentencing options that are more likely to influence offenders’ perceptions of risks represented by their behaviour, and bring about lasting attitudinal change.
Based on the experience in other jurisdictions, evidence indicated that a well designed Driving While Intoxicated Courts/List (based on a specialist problem-oriented approach) provides a promising alternative to traditional sentencing approaches.
