Drivers are currently penalised three demerit points for exceeding a speed limit by less than 15 kilometres per hour, with a total of 12 points within two years resulting in cancellation of their licence. With points penalties commonly doubled during long-weekend holidays, this can mean a driver loses his or her licence for just two minor offences. "We will change the law," Roads Minister Michael Daly said today. "Three points for exceeding the speed limit from 0 to 15 (km/h) will be reduced, and I'll be coming back with a comprehensive proposal to make motoring fairer for people in NSW," he said. thoughts? I think its brilliant, and sensible, should come into effect EVERYWHERE.
