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.
