Driving light rules change
Changes to vehicle lighting rules aimed at improving safety on New Zealand roads are set to come into force on April 1 2011.
Among the changes included in the rules will be the permitting of new safety technology such as emergency brake lights which flash briefly under heavy braking and are being introduced in many modern vehicles. It will be mandatory for all light trailers registered after April 1 2012 to be fitted with indicator and stop lamps and allows bicycles to be fitted with indicator and stop lamps.
