The ACT Parliament recently introduced the new Road Transport (Road Rules) Regulation 2017 (ACT) (‘the Regulations’) which will commence from 30 April 2018.
The regulations consolidate the Australian Road Rules and the ACT specific road rules from the Road Transport (Safety and Traffic Management) Regulation 2000 as well as adding a few new rules.
How will these road rules affect bike riders? Richard Faulks, Managing Director at Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers, takes a look at 6 rules in the new regulations that specifically relate to cycling.
Breaches of regulations can incur hefty fines.
