What is the incentive for an offender to do the program?
THERE IS NO GUARANTEE BUT THE OFFENDER MAY RECEIVE A LIGHTER SENTENCE AND FINE, DEPENDANT UPON THE INDIVIDUALS HISTORY, CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE OFFENCE. NATURALLY, WE CANNOT GIVE ANY GUARANTEES AS THE MAGISTRATE WILL DEAL WITH OFFENDERS ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS.
QTOP is a road safety education program. Completing the program demonstrates you are addressing your offending behaviour to deter reoffending to save lives in our communities.
Completion of the program will be taken into consideration by a magistrate as a mitigating factor in sentencing. The fact that an offender has demonstrated remorse and sought education for their actions it will be taken into consideration in the overall sentencing process.
The program is designed to increase the participants’ understanding of their social commitment and traffic laws and use reality checks on statistics and events that do occur because of drink/drug driving or general breaching of traffic laws.
