    A YOUNG man has become the first driver in Queensland to be slugged with double demerit points after being caught speeding twice within minutes.

    The 24-year-old, from Brisbane, will face almost $1000 in fines and the loss of 20 points from his licence after twice speeding at Fernvale, west of the city, police said.

    Police caught him allegedly driving at 125 kmh in a 100 kmh zone on Friday and, minutes later, at 118 kmh in a 60 kmh zone, also in Fernvale.

    He was issued a speeding ticket with four demerit points and a $250 fine for the initial offence, and a $700 fine and eight double-demerit points (16 lost points) for the second.

    A six-month suspension also applies for his second offence - speeding more than 40 kmh over the limit.

    Queensland's double-demerit point system for speeding was introduced last week in an effort to prevent a repeat of the state's horror road toll last year.

    A teenage motorcyclist has been killed in Darwin, taking the national Easter road toll to nine.

    A 17-year-old passenger from Churchill was killed on the Princes Highway near Traralgon.

    About 30 minutes later, a driver was killed in the south-western coastal town of Princetown when the car hit a fence

    Both NSW and South Australia have had two road fatalities during the holiday period, while Queensland and Western Australia have both had one death on their roads.

    I heard something, and consider it to be just a rumor, but I was told perhaps just limited to certain states depending upon processing that you could not get more than one ticket i.e. for speeding, just as that situation above (I realize that is in another country all together) but like I said I heard a this rumor long ago that one can not get two speeding tickets the same day, anyone else heard a rumor like that?
