Demerit Point System:
Let's say you have 0 points on 1st January 2009, 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 one Year.
If during this one year you have no demerit point offences at all, your 3 demerit points will be gone on 1/1/2010.
But, if during this one year, from 1/1/2009 to 1/1/2010, you commit another offence with demerit points, your very first offence will be extended for another year until 1/1/2011.

i think its all down to speed access right.
anyone here kenna those sibei jia lat one that has to attend court one ?
curious.... how fast do they send these court orders ? 1mth or 2weeks or ?
When I came out of the car, the TP put up quite a drama. He said he had a hard time following me as I was going too fast (I almost blurt out laughing when I heard that). Then, he touched the bonnet of my car and put his nose close to it to take a sniff at the engine. He said he can smell when a car has been speeding excessively. Asked me whether I had been drinking and I told him that I just returned from Malaysia and that my son was having stomach ache hence I was rushing home.
He then issued me with a ticket. Told his corporal to put the speed at 130km/h and the poor chap sort of protested. I was like going at 180km/h. Two weeks later the summon to court came. I appealed and they asked me to go to Kg Ubi for interview.
At Kg Ubi, the officer decided to fine me $300 with 12 demerit points and he said that it was the best he could do for me under the circumstances. I accepted the compounded fine straight away else would have to attend court to plead guilty and ask for leniency. Dependent upon whether the judge wants to make an example of me, the likelihood of my license being suspended would have been very high!
Counted myself lucky.

If you want to speed, be on high alert. Every bend, slope, bridge, there may be santa waiting. Even if you have a radar detector, it is useless as they know you cant react in time.
Best is, dont speed, or speed within the limit.
