WA considers banning car wheel clamping

Laws prohibiting vehicle clamping are being considered by the West Australian government.

After a flood of recent complaints on talkback radio about increasingly unscrupulous clamping in Perth, Premier Mark McGowan said "legislative options" were being considered.

"I hate it - I think it's un-Australian," Mr McGowan told ABC radio on Thursday, adding unlawful parking should be dealt with in other ways.
