Snow Safety

Double Demerits in place this Labour Day long weekend.

Canberrans are reminded to drive with care, and to the conditions, as double demerit points come into effect over the Labour Day long weekend. 

ACT Policing officers will be out and about this long weekend conducting patrols to ensure Canberrans stay safe over the break. 

The double demerit period begins at 12am on Friday, 30 September 2022 and stays into effect until 11.59pm on Monday 3 October 2022.  

Officer in Charge of Road Policing, Detective Acting Inspector Paul Hutcheson said the long weekend is a time to be with your loved ones, and is not the time to put other drivers at risk.  

“The destination is the important thing. Not how long it takes you to get there,” Detective Acting Inspector Hutcheson said.  

If it is important enough to get there, it is important enough to get there safe”
