Other Traffic Offences
There are numerous offences in New South Wales, which carry a penalty of loss of points and/or a significant fine. In the event that twelve (12) or more demerit points are accrued in the course of the requisite period a driver may find themselves disqualified or suspended from holding a licence.
Further, a person may face a charge of negligent driving and other serious charges in relation to controlling a motor vehicle.
The Roads and Traffic Authority may issue a driver a notice declaring the driver a habitual traffic offender. This is a very serious declaration and may mean that a driver will find themselves the subject of an extended period of disqualification as a result of committing a number of offences within a five (5) year period.
