New dangerous driving laws tabled in Tasmanian Parliament

Proposed new laws to significantly crackdown on dangerous drivers have been tabled in Parliament.

On Tuesday, Acting Attorney-General Matthew Groom tabled the potential changes, calling for dangerous driving offences to be moved to the Criminal Code.

This would see the maximum penalty for a first offence increased from two years imprisonment to 21. 

The changes could also see dangerous driving become an indictable offence that could be heard in the Supreme Court.
