It was reported in The Canberra Times that the ACT Government and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade have reached a deal that ends the absolute immunity from the local road rules for foreign diplomats.
Having had a few near misses with cars bearing diplomat plates, I can’t help but think that it really is about time.
Hopefully this will result in safer roads here in the ACT.
What do others think?
