How will a Banned Drinkers Register actually work?
This week the State Government announced a trial of a Banned Drinkers Register (BDR) in the Kimberley, with a similar trial having just begun in the Pilbara.

Scantek is a Perth company who have been given the task of rolling out these scanning machines and their Managing Director Ches Rafferty joined the weekend to explain how it all works.
