A PUSH to increase safety on the roads by changing driver habits is the focus of a program that Opposition spokeswoman for Roads and Strathfield state Labor MP Jodi McKay is jumping behind, and she says her party will be taking to the next election.
Drivers caught conducting low level driving offences would have the option to undergo a retraining program in lieu of demerit points under the program being proposed by NSW Labor.
Ms McKay said that when it comes to road safety the focus needs to be on drivers changing their behaviour and not on revenue raising.
"It's time NSW caught up with the rest of the world in addressing speeding offences in particular with education and retraining," she said.
"Driver retraining programs have been incredibly effective around the world."
