today on the 27th Jan (Double Demerit) received a fine for having 3 passengers without a seat belt on. which is $1106 and 12 demerit points.
in addition, the 3 passengers that didn't have the seatbelt on was international visitors and they also received a $280 fine each. total of $840 between the 3. so eventually I have to pay a fine of $1946 and 12 demerit points?
is this the right thing? why do the passengers have to pay the fine? I thought all the responsibility was all on the driver?
please let me know if this is right? I will appeal this infringement
