Premier Mike Rann said in a statement that law offenders who cause injuries or death are facing a penalty of 15 years in prison or even for life, depending on the injuries caused by the accident.
"These dangerous drivers will be treated like serious criminals," Rann said according to adelaidenow.com. "There should be zero tolerance toward those who use public roads as their own personal racetrack. This is about saving our kids' lives. This is about making sure people who are a total menace to society, who should not have the right to drive a car can have it taken away. If you are a menace to society on the road, then you'll lose your licence for good."
"What we are talking about ... we're talking about people who cost people's lives and cause either death or suffering or repeat after repeat dangerous driving."
Described as a "menace to society", drivers who got their license suspended will also be allowed to appeal the decision in court.
