New Road Rule from September 1 2018

40k for Passing Emergency Vehicles.jpg

From 1 September 2018, the NSW Government will introduce a new road rule requiring motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing stationary emergency vehicles which are displaying red or blue flashing lights.

Reduce your speed in a controlled manner so you are not exceeding 40 km/h when you pass the emergency vehicle. Keep to 40 km/h until you’ve safely passed all people and emergency vehicles.

If you are travelling on a road divided by a median and the emergency vehicle is on the opposite side of the road, you are not required to slow down to 40km/h.

On an undivided road, motorists on both sides of the road have to slow down to 40km/h.

This will include RBT sites.
