"We are going to raise operating costs from $ 300 to $ 1,800, so there will be a very significant financial discouragement for bosses and companies to protect the mindless idiots in their company or company that are speeding", said treasurer of the state, Rob Lucas. .

The South Australian government will usher in the new fines on top of various other increment increases – such as hospital parking and public transportation rates – to close the GST gap in the state.

Mr. Lucas said he hoped the increase would be $ 79 million from a saving of $ 500 million in expected GST revenues. The treasurer of the state noted that he had no sympathy for speeding drivers.

& # 39; As (former treasurer) Kevin Foley said, this is a voluntary form of taxation, you do not have to pay any speeding fines of any size, & # 39; said Mr. Lucas.

& # 39; If you decide to accelerate at 30, 40 or 50 km / h greater than the speed limit, you deserve to be killed. & # 39;

Queensland drivers will also pay more because the government of the state wants to increase speeding fines in July.

In Queensland, the fine for driving will rise at 13-20 km / h above the speed limit of $ 261 to $ 267.

As it is, most a driver who can pay for speeding is $ 1,218 and that is if they accelerate 40 km / h over the limit.

Eight points for points and a six-month suspension are also handed over to them.

Despite the rise in prices, New South Wales still has one of the highest fines for speeding drivers in the country.

An NSW driver caught a speed of 45 km / h above the speed limit, with a huge fine of $ 2,435, six points and a six-month suspension.

Anyone caught driving between 30 km / h and 45 km / h will receive a $ 903 fine, five points and a three-month suspension.

Victorian riders caught caught at speeds over 45 km / h above the speed limit will have to pay $ 806 and stop driving for 12 months.
