The driver was issued with a Traffic Infringement Notice, a fine of $1811 and 12 demerit points.

“With double demerits in effect until midnight this Sunday, motorists should think carefully about what it would mean to them if they lost their licence,” warned police spokesperson Sgt Tracey Duck. “More to the point, what it could mean if they or their loved ones were involved in a serious collision as a result of dangerous driving.”
