Big Increases in Water Catchment Fines

25-Feb-2012

One of the implications of the Department of Water's newly released Policy 13 on recreational access is the likelihood of steep increases in fines for riding in water catchment areas.

The recommendation accepted by the Government committee is for the maximum fine to be increased to $5,000, with a 'modified penalty' of $500 to be issued via infringement notice. If this legislative change goes through expect to see many more Water Corporation rangers handing out many more $500 tickets.
