Max Markson, PR Company Owner and high flyer is a repeat offender but still manages to keep his licence http://smh.drive.com.au/motor-news/t...0330-rbkz.html
You should have been notified by mail if you were close to loosing your licence due to demerit points and if you accumulate 12 or more demerit points in any three year period, you will be disqualified from holding or obtaining a driver’s licence or permit. Each three year period is calculated based on the dates the offences were committed.
If you accumulate:
Demerit points are incurred whether the offence is committed in South Australia or interstate.
- 12 to 15 points you lose your right to drive for three months
- 16 to 20 points you lose your right to drive for four months
- more than 20 points you lose your right to drive for five months.
So if you have accumulated more than 12 points and are concerned with loosing your licence and your car is not registered in your company name may I suggest the good behaviour option;
In lieu of serving the demerit point disqualification, you may be eligible to apply for a good behaviour option. Information on the good behaviour option is provided on the disqualification notice. You must make a formal application to accept a 12 month good behaviour option at the time of acknowledging receipt of your disqualification notice. Once the good behaviour condition is accepted, you will be able to continue to drive but your licence will be subject to the condition that you do not incur two or more demerit points during the good behaviour period. If you incur two or more points you will be disqualified for twice the original disqualification period (with no right of appeal or further good behaviour option). Demerit points associated with an existing demerit disqualification or good behaviour option are not counted towards a future disqualification.

Cool thats alot of information.
Maybe your "friend" deserves to loose his licence as he obviously doesn't have any consideration for the other road users, he hasn't learnt his lesson from being caught before. It's always the innocent that get hurt in accidents and not the idiots that are speeding.
Andrew, Lisa, Mason and Isabelle. In Aldinga Beach and loving it.
What's the saying...if you can't do the time..then don't do the crime.
I would like to ask though...will 'your friend' slow down now..or is it just an occuaptional hazard. Just asking out of curiosity.
and let richard heads speed without a big enough sentence.
