We remind motorists in NSW and the ACT to drive safely and to remember that double demerits are in place for four days over the October long weekend.
Double demerits start on Friday 4 October and run through to Labour Day on Monday 7 October (inclusive). The double demerit points period applies from midnight of the start date to midnight on the finish date.
Double demerit points apply for speeding, seat belt, motorcycle helmet and mobile phone offences during all holiday periods such as long weekends, Christmas, New Year and Easter. Drivers caught using their phones during a double demerit period can expect to be hit with the fine as well as up to 10 demerits.
Please drive safely and take extra care on the roads. You can check your demerit points here.
