The Easter double demerit points will be between 17-21 April and 24-27 April. If you run a red light with a mobile phone on your ear, you're probably going to lose your license. It also looks like the police are under orders to book people using mobile phones for as many offences as they've committed such as not staying within your lane, failing to cancel an indication etc. They've also advised other drivers to be on the look out for distracted drivers and to horn them.
