40kh Passing Road Rule Starts Tomorrow

This Saturday, 1 September, the new road rule requiring motorists to slow to 40k/h when passing emergency workers and volunteers attending to road incidents will commence.

This is building on what the NSW Government did in 2013 which saw the introduction of a new offence relating to the safe passing of emergency vehicles and personnel, as part of the Government’s Breakdown Safety Strategy.
