As for Demerit Point system
Let's say you have 24 points on 1st January 2007, 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 1 Year. If during this 1 year you have no demerit points offence at all, your 3 demerit points will be gone on 1/1/2008. But, if during this one year, From 1/1/2007 - 1/1/2008, you committed another offence with demerit points, your very first offence will be extended for another year until 1/1/2009
