Law in your backyard

The “Texting Tim” case study explored different types of offences that can be committed while driving a car in Australia. It’s now time for you to discover how the law applies in your jurisdiction.

What you need to do

  1. Go online and find the law and applicable penalties for driving-related offences in your jurisdiction. If you live in Australia, consider finding out about the law and penalties in another State or from another common law jurisdiction.

  2. In the Comments, share with other learners your findings.

If you’re not sure how to find law resources, watch Caroline’s How to start finding the law and How to access online law resources to learn how to access and search for legal information online.
