The holiday period is basically here and whether we are ready or not… IT IS HAPPENING!
There is so much going on in our lives that sadly this time of the year can lead to the most car accidents on the road.
Which is why Double Demerits are put in place to make sure we travel safely always.
For Sydney this Christmas period, the Double Demerits points will begin on the 22nd of December 2017 and will end on the 1st of January 2018.
The demerit point system provides an incentive for drivers to improve their driving behaviour, obey road rules and comply with NSW traffic laws. The double demerit point scheme applies for the following types of offences:
- Illegal use of mobile phones
- Not wearing a seatbelt
- Riding without a helmet
Following into 2018, these are the dates we have so far that Double Demerits will be set in place.
- Australia Day - 25 to 28 January 2018
- Easter - 29 March to 2 April 2018
- Queen’s Birthday - 8 to 11 June 2018
- Labour Day- 28 September to 1 October 2018
Be safe this Christmas.
