Double demerit reminder

His Chiefliness reminds us (and therefore we remind you) that it’s double demerits this weekend.

“Double demerit points will apply for speeding and seatbelt offences from Friday 23 April to Monday 26 April 2010 inclusive,” said Mr Stanhope.

He encouraged drivers to take regular rest breaks, share the driving, stay within the speed limit and exercise caution on unfamiliar roads.

“If drivers exceed the speed limit this ANZAC Day long weekend by 16km/h to 30 km/h they can lose 6 demerit points, while exceeding the speed limit by 31km/h to 45km/h can result in 8 demerit points being lost.

Another reason to be sensible.

That’s great news for speeders. Accrued 6 demerit points and worried you might lose your license if you accrue any more? Just do 99 in an 80 zone and Jon will make your license shiny and new again. Thanks Jon!
