You must follow the road rules for your safety and the safety of others when you drive. If you don’t, you can be fined or have your driver licence or car taken off you.
You pay speeding tickets and Police infringement notices, for example for not wearing a seatbelt, directly to the Police.
An alcohol interlock is an electronic device that prevents you from driving if you’ve been drinking.
