Re: Demerit Points

"Overtaking or passing vehicle other than with other vehicle on left side of the motor vehicle"

So....this means that if you get stuck behind someone in the right hand lane doing 60 in a 110 zone, you are NOT allowed to pass them on the left.
I'm surprised the Police don't purposely do this so that they can fine you when you pass them on the left.

Re: Demerit Points

Move to the Northern Territory

No points system and no open road speed limit

I miss that open road@170, my cruise control is still cofused at numbers below 140.
