SIMON Corbell is reminding drivers that double demerit points will be applied over the Labour Day long weekend as part of the government’s commitment to improving road safety.
Double demerit points will apply to speeding offences and increased demerit points will apply to a number of other traffic offences from Friday 3 October to Monday 6 October 2014 inclusive, and are in line with NSW arrangements over this holiday period.
“Speeding, fatigue and drink-driving are the main causes of road deaths and serious crashes. Plan your trip to meet arrival times without exceeding speed limits,” Simon said.
"When Canberra Theatre director Kirsty Budding announced auditions for her adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”, more than 80 young people turned up to try out," writes arts editor HELEN MUSA.
