DOUBLE demerit points will be in place for 10 of the next 11 days because of Easter and Anzac Day.
The Easter double demerit period will run from Thursday, April 18 to Monday, April 22, followed by the Anzac Day period from Wednesday, April 24, until Sunday, April 28.
During both periods, police say all speeding, seatbelt and mobile phone offences will attract double demerit points. Cyclists riding without a helmet will also be targeted. Any other traffic offences will incur one additional demerit point.
The Canberra Liberals has written to Football Federation Australia, asking for it to reconsider Canberra’s involvement in the FIFA 2023 Women’s World Cup after the ACT government chose not to bid for a local game.
