Double demerits for Queensland drivers on phones

Postby busdriver » Thu May 21, 2015 7:56 pm

From September anybody in Queensland caught on the phone while driving will receive double Demerit Points, if they commit the offence twice or more during a 12 month period.

This could easy send alot of drivers off the road pretty quick.

Does that only apply to Queensland Licences or any one driving in that state?

I'm wondering if a Queensland Licence Holder gets done in another state and it there second offence within 12 months, it will be interesting to see if TMR will record double demerit points against them in Queensland.
