Demerit Point system :

If during this 1year you have no demerit points offence at all, your 3 demerit points will be gone on 1/1/2006. But, if during this one year, From 1/1/2005- 1/1/2006, you committed another offence with demerit points, your very first offence will be extended for another year until 1/1/2007.

What’s the difference between careless, inconsiderate and dangerous driving (aside from different fines involved)?

Is trying to run down pedestrains dangerous? Is not stopping for pedestrians inconsiderate? Is going too fast in a pedestrain-heavy street regarded as careless driving?

Isn’t it all the same thing? I suppose one could say they were actually careless, to reduce the fine instead of being deemed ‘dangerous’ in the same situations. :roll:

Phone and Drive = $200 + 12 demerit point + Phone Confiscate.
Do not hold your handphone in your hand when you drive even with loud speaker or ear piece.

Sure. Do not hold the manual transmission shifter in your hand too. Or touch the rearview mirrors. Or rub your eyes when dust flies in when you’re driving. Must keep both hands on the wheel always… Next, they’ll start fining for touching the gearshift.
