Double demerits will apply for all speeding, seatbelt, mobile phone and motorcycle helmet offences from 12am on Wednesday, September 21 until 11.59pm on Sunday, September 25.

Double demerits will be a royal pain for drivers caught breaking the law this week, with the harsher penalties arriving early due to Thursday's public holiday.
