Double Demerit Point Reminder
The October 2014 long weekend is almost upon us. Here is a reminder re: double demerit points and when they will apply.
The double demerit period will begin at 12:01am Friday, 3 October and finish at 11:59pm Monday, 6 October.
Loss of double demerit points will apply to the following:
- all speeding offences
- all seatbelt and child restraint offences and
- all motorcycle helmet offences
If you are travelling on our country roads or driving long distances, plan ahead, be prepared and enjoy the journey. A little extra time can mean arriving safely. Driver Reviver stops will be in operation throughout the holiday period.
Note that NSW School Holidays finish on the long weekend and school zones will then come into force once more at 8:00am Tuesday, 7 October.
We wish you a safe and enjoyable long weekend.Back
