Double Demerits over the Christmas Period

Written by Rebecca Saunders


Christmas is around the corner and it's best to prepare yourself for the traffic congestion that follows.
Double Demerits begin on Friday 20/12/2019 and run through to New Years Day on 01/01/2020.
Demerits apply for speeding, seatbelt, helmet, motorbike and mobile phone related offences.

The Demerit Point system is beneficial to improve driving behaviour, obey the road rules and comply with NSW traffic laws. Drivers caught with a mobile phone during a double demerit point period can expect a fine and loss of 10 demerit points. School Zones will still apply up to 20/12/2019 and will fall within the double demerit period. Certain driving and parking offences attract an additional demerit point if committed in a school zone. The Demerit's for these offences will be doubled on 20/12/2019.

So this Christmas remember to buckle up or strap on your helmet, remain cautious, alert and more importantly stay safe.

Happy Driving and Merry Christmas.
