Keira MP and shadow roads minister Ryan Park has suggested excluding some driving offences from being punished with demerit points.
The suggestion comes as part of Mr Park's call for the government to review the demerit point system for drivers.
Mr Park is focusing on drivers with unrestricted licences who at present, can lose their licence if they accumulate 13 points in a three-year period starting with the first offence.
According to Mr Park, 65 per cent of all fines issued in 2012-13 were for exceeding the speed limit by less than 10km/h.
"More than ever motorists are being caught driving at low-level offences rather than huge speeds and I want to ensure they are being given a fair go," he said.
Mr Park showed some support for a NRMA proposal that would see a motorist charged with a low-range offence attend a driver education course rather than receive a fine and demerit points.
"This is a sensible proposal that merits further consideration by the government," Mr Park said.
The Keira MP said a review into the demerit system - including a possible increase in the number of points - was necessary because of the substantial increase in the number of cameras designed to catch offenders.
"In the last two years alone, the NSW government has overseen a seven-fold increase in the mobile speed camera program across the state," he said. "It has been close to three years since any changes were made to the demerit points that motorists can accumulate before suspensions take place. While this review may well conclude that no changes are required at this stage, I think it's vital that this issue is fully examined."
Roads Minister Duncan Gay slammed Mr Park's call for a possible easing of the demerit system.
"Ryan Park has become an apologist for people who break the law," Mr Gay said. "There are no innocent people running red lights or speeding through intersections, there are only the innocent casualties or dead."
Mr Gay also pointed out that the review was something that could not happen at a state level.
"Ryan Park knows full well that any review of the national demerit system would need to be addressed at the national level in collaboration with all states and territories," Mr Gay said.
