Labour Day long weekend double demerits

PIC: File

You could get some hefty fines this weekend if you don't stick to the road rules.

Double demerits are in place until midnight Monday for the Labour Day long weekend.

Several offences can cost you more demerits and money than usual, including:

- Drink or drug driving
- Speeding
- Failing to wear a seatbelt and child restraint
- Running a red light
- Illegal use of a mobile phone while driving

Police are set to be out in force this long weekend.

It's also advised that freeways and main carriage ways could get heavily congested, particularly on Saturday and Monday.

Take care while driving and remember to slow down and be vigilant on the road.
