All the warnings of Easter Double Demerits weren’t enough for one 24 year old female driver from Umina. Driving in a Northerly direction on the M1, she was caught by police driving her car at 110km/h whilst holding a mobile phone in her right hand. When the police approached the driver after pulling her over, they noticed that her three children were not properly secured in the vehicle. Not only were they not restrained correctly, and all three children’s child seats were not anchored to the vehicle as required by the law.
The driver was issued four infringement notices, three for the children not being restrained properly and one for driving whilst using a mobile phone. The fine was $1,348.00 and due to the Double Demerits weekend, she was issued with a staggering 28 Demerit points!
Double Demerits continues today until Sunday, 28 April over the ANZAC day holiday, so be sure to stick to the law.
