Double Demerits October 2013

Do not forget that double demerits apply this weekend.

Double demerits apply from midnight on Thursday 3 October 2013 until midnight on Monday 7 October 2013.

Double demerits apply to speeding, seatbelt and motorcycle helmet offences.

Double demerits can quickly add up to the allowed maximum of 13 points for most fully licenced drivers.

For example, a driver not wearing a seatbelt will accumulate 6 points this weekend. If the driver also has one passenger not wearing a seatbelt 12 points will be accumulated and if there are two passengers in addition to the driver not wearing a seatbelt, 18 points will be accumulated, resulting in the loss of the driver's licence.

Exceeding the speed limit by 10 to 20 km/h will result in 6 demerit points for a driver on a full licence.

Drive carefully and enjoy the weekend.
