New rules to slow down

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

THIS has had its share of air play but we think it’s well worth giv­ing it a run for those who aren’t aware.

From this week­end mo­torists travelling in Vic­to­ria must slow down to 40km/h or be­low that speed when pass­ing a sta­tion­ary of slow mov­ing emer­gency ser­vice ve­hi­cle when its lights are flash­ing.

The new rule comes into ef­fect from this Satur­day, July 1, in an ef­fort to im­prove safety con­di­tions for emer­gency and en­force­ment work­ers.

The new rule ap­plies to all road types in­clud­ing free­ways.

Emer­gency ser­vice ve­hi­cles cov­ered un­der this law in­clude po­lice, Am­bu­lance Vic­to­ria, Coun­try Fire Au­thor­ity, Metropoli­tan Fire Bri­gade, State Emer­gency Ser­vice and VicRoads.
