Topic 1 – The Dangers of Low Level Speeding and the Contribution it Makes to Road Trauma
Presented by: Stuart McGregor Detective Inspector
Being “a good driver” will not stop you or one of your workers dying or killing another road user in a fleet vehicle collision. We have all heard the catch-cry “speed kills” but what is the evidence and what does it mean to the average driver who just goes a little over the speed limit.
Victoria Police’s Stuart McGregor will share his knowledge in this field and his experience from leading Road Crime Investigations

Presented by: Melissa Harvey
The Surveillance Devices Act 2016 (SA), which came into operation on 18 December 2017, overhauls South Australia’s surveillance laws and brings the state in line with other jurisdictions and up-to-date with modern technology.
