New Road Rule - Slow to 40 around stopped emergency vehicles

In NSW, a new road safety rule requires motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing stationary emergency vehicles which are using their red or blue flashing lights.  This new rule provides extra protection for emergency service workers and volunteers who respond to crashes, breakdowns and other incidents on our roads which can place them at risk.

The Centre for Road Safety advises motorists should always start slowing down in a controlled manner as soon as they see blue or red flashing lights, taking into account the current road conditions including surrounding vehicles.

Read more about this new road rule that is on trial for 12 months on the Centre for Road Safety website.

Road Rule Reminder - Gap for Vehicle Passing Bicycle

Drivers who pass a bicycle rider must allow a distance of at least:

  • 1 metre when the speed limit is 60km/h or less
  • 1.5 metres when the speed limit is more than 60km/h
