NEW 1 METRE RULE FOR MOTORISTS

Drivers in New South Wales who travel too close to cyclists will be fined $330 and lose two demerit points under new laws being introduced by the State Government following a successful two-year trial.

The laws mean drivers who pass cyclists must leave a distance of at least one metre when the speed limit is 60 kilometres per hour or lower. When the speed limit is above 60kph, they must leave a 1.5m gap.

Digital Licence is on the way !!!

 

Digital licences are on the horizon for implementation in NSW and there is a lot of excitement and anticipation towards this new feature. Our Minister of Finance, Service, and Property Victor Dominello said that “Smartphones have become de facto wallets and we’re using cutting edge technology so that drivers can use a digital licence in everyday scenarios”. If this proposed legislation is passed, NSW residents can access, update, and renew their licence without needing to visit a service centre.
Our favourite benefits of this innovation are:

MOTORISTS will be forced to slow down to 40km/h when passing police, ambulance or other emergency service vehicles under a State government “flashing light” trial to stop roadside carnage.

The Sunday Telegraph can reveal drivers will also be required to give way to any person on foot in the vicinity of an emergency vehicle displaying flashing lights, and not increase speed until “a sufficient distance past”. Motorists who disobey the proposed new regulation will face a $439 fine and the loss of three demerit points, or a maximum court penalty of $2200.

Onroad is helping participants on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The NDIS may be something you have heard about recently with the Government allocating funding towards the scheme in the recent Federal budget. This scheme has been put into place to assist people with a disability achieve day-to-day tasks. Receiving support is not only limited to the individual and offered to their family & carers. This is one of the many reasons that the Government has placed such a priority on continuing to fund the scheme as it is helping a large proportion of Australians.
