"No, it is an error, either by the officer in putting the wrong code in or the system lacked a separate code for bicycles and has since been corrected. Anyone who has had points allocated to their license for a cycling offense needs to get them…"

"Applying demerit points for fines occurring from non motorised vehicles is directly against the law. The RMS don't know the legislation which governs them."

"I assume you mean that he had no nett change to his points afterwards. The dispute process would be good to know!"

"I see that one guy who got done for a stop sign has had the points removed from his license.  Anyone who has points awarded to their license needs to get them removed. I've asked him to write up the process for getting the points removed"

"That's why I included the proviso that you'd have to take it to court. I wonder when the idea that demerit points now apply to this type of offence gained currency. Sure the "road rules" being the NSW Road Transport Act treat…"

"I heard second hand that a few guys DID lose points. When I was done for red light on a bicycle I produced my cycling licence (the cop was shocked they exist) and I was fined but lost NO points.  So none of this points business makes sense to…"

"I want to see the funny side of this - but nothing funny about 1,250 people being killed annually plus the many many more who are maimed. Is it really a legal technicality where they can't presume that the driver failed to notice the red light…"

"What seems to have happened is that there are codes for offenses and there is different codes for an offense committed on a bicycle to the same offense committed on a bicycle.  RTA's system looks up the code and applies the points to the…"
