In Vic now the fines come quicker - about 10 days. The photo is also free on their website.
I do notice that nominating another driver and requesting a review take ages now. 3 months.
Just look at the proposal in NSW for 5 points for TOUCHING your phone. Double demerit points applies. People are addicted to their phones and wont stop, so they will pay more fines and drive around unlicensed because they lost their license and get more fines for that , etc. and away we go. It's disgusting.
I don't really care about using my phone in the car, but if I was one of the people above I think you could reasonably argue you were addicted and had no knowledge of what you were doing and get off like people get off when they are substance addicted.
