Increased Demerit Points

(0 votes)

The Road Safety Act 1986 challenges the Income Tax Assessment Act in terms of legal complexity. Governments, it seems, can not help themselves but to find new and creative ways of punishing drivers for engaging in risky behaviour. The latest changes to come in force involve increased fines and demerit points for using a mobile phone while driving.

Previously, one would receive a $289 fine and 3 Demerit points. However, the fine has just gone up to $433 and 4 Demerit points. Drive carefully.
