Understanding Double Demerits: Ensuring a Safe Easter Long Weekend with Pannu Lawyers- We defend!

double demerit points

As the Easter long weekend approaches, New South Wales (NSW) motorists need to be aware of the implications of double demerit points. This enforcement mechanism, aimed at promoting safer driving behaviours during peak holiday periods, carries significant consequences for those who fail to adhere to road rules.

What are Double Demerit Points?

Double demerit points are a penalty system implemented by the NSW government during specific periods, such as public holidays and long weekends. The purpose is to deter drivers from engaging in risky behaviours by increasing the consequences for traffic offenses.

Key Offenses and Penalties

Pannu Lawyers highlights the importance of understanding the key offenses that attract double demerit points:

  1. Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit can result in hefty fines and the accumulation of demerit points, which are doubled during the designated periods.
  2. Seatbelt and Helmet Offenses: Failing to wear a seatbelt or helmet, or allowing passengers to do the same, can lead to double demerit points.
  3. Mobile Phone Use: Using a mobile phone while driving is not only dangerous but also attracts double demerit points during the Easter long weekend.
