Double Demerits - Think Twice (30 seconds)
[A car is pulled over on the side of the road by a Highway Patrol police car. The driver looks worriedly in a side mirror as a police officer approaches his car.]
Police Officer 1: Sir, you're going too fast.
[A second police officer appears. He is an exact double of the first.]
Police officer 2: Sir, you’re going too fast
Police Officer 1 & 2: Licence, please.
[The driver hands his licence over to the first police officer, while the second police officer speaks into his radio to request a licence check.]
Narrator: Double demerits come into force this holiday period.
[The driver looks anxiously into his rear view mirror as the police officers walk around inspecting his car.]
Narrator: Which means, if you're caught speeding, using a mobile phone illegally or not wearing a seatbelt or helmet, you're in for double the consequences.
[The officers finish inspecting the car and move back towards the driver’s window]
Narrator: And lost points can quickly add up to a lost licence.
[The driver looks worriedly at the police officer]
Narrator: So, with double demerits these holidays, think twice.
