Double Demerits

As usual the festive season has heavier penalties for traffic offences. Double Demerits are in place from 20th-Dec to 2nd-Jan so please ride safely.

Obviously many people travel during the summer holidays and are therefore more tired and impatient drivers. Please be mindful of that if you’re out riding these holidays. Don’t become part of the statistics. Maintain a buffer, reduce your speed, don’t ride on the edge and leave room for the unexpected. Remember, you are the one responsible for your life!

This year is particularly hazardous due to the currently raging bushfires. Road closures, fallen trees and plenty of debris may affect your route, so please plan ahead.

Be safe and enjoy the ride!
