Double demerits for road offences over Easter

DOUBLE demerit points will come into force over the Easter long-weekend from midnight Wednesday.

Motorists are being urged to take extra care on the roads this long-weekend, with police targeting speeding, seatbelt and helmet offences.

The double demerits will run until midnight on Monday, April 21, with motorists encouraged to be wary of other drivers.

Police have released a simple checklist for motorists; check the roadworthiness of their car, always wear a seatbelt, never drink and drive, drive to the weather conditions, don’t exceed the speed limit, never talk on your mobile phone and take breaks every two hours.
