    I have 8 demerit points left out of 12 (lost 4 this year) which is supposed to last me another 2 years for a total of 3.

    I don't think I have any other choice but to slow down...

    I've got 4 points left, and I start getting them back in 8 months or so. :)

    When you get your car drivers licence you get demerit points, in VIC you get 12 of them (not sure about other states).

    For speeding and other road related offences you loose points depending on how serious you break the law. Once you loose all your points, your licence is taken away for a certain amount of time depending on what you did.

    Same here in NSW, the amount of points lost increase with the severity of the offence.

    EG, up to 15kms over the limit , loss of one point
    EG, more than 50km over the limit, bye bye licence.

    There's stuff in between those but I dont know exactly.

    Thx for clearing that up about those points as I was wondering about them myself to..

    In Sweden you loose the licence if driving 30km/h over the limit. And the fine is often $10 usd per km you exceed the limit. That's why I got $120 in fine for doing 62km/h on a 50 road.. :cry:

    My only offense though, except for a couple of parking tickets..

    wow... it seems that other places are very strict on drivers. Around here you can easily get away with 5 mph over, sometimes even 10. It is very rare that I hear of someone that gets a ticket for less than 6 mph over the limit

    Depending who catches you, a lot of policemen I know will let people off unless they are doing 7km/h+ over the limit. Unless you get caught by a camera. Nothing can stop that. :(
