Demerit Point system:
Let’s say you have 0 point on 1st January 2005, and you committed the offence of Failing to Put on Seat Belt.
So now, you will have 3 demerit points and this will last for 1 Year.
If during this 1 year 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 commited another offence with demerit points, your very first offence will be
extended for another year until 1/1/2007.
