SPEEDING - 3 TO 6 DEMERIT POINTS
A conviction for Speeding:
By law, everyone should drive within the posted speed limit. Failure to do so could result in a speeding charge. On conviction for speeding, if you did not receive a driver’s licence suspension by the Court, you will receive 3, 4 or 6 demerit points depending on how many km/hr of the posted speed limit you were travelling. Your driver’s licence could be suspended by the Registrar if you accumulated enough demerit points. For detailed information about how the demerit point system works, please refer to the Demerit Points s.128.. Contact us today to find out more...
