New Law in New South Wales.

This is a new road rule that commences from the 1st September, 2018 which relates to passing stationary emergency vehicles displaying their strobe lights.  All motorists must slow to 40km/h to pass and carries a hefty penalty for failing to do so.

The new rule requires motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing a stationary emergency vehicle displaying blue or red flashing lights.
The new rule also requires motorists to give way to any person on foot in the immediate area of the emergency vehicle. Motorists should not increase their speed until they are a safe distance past the vehicle, so as not to cause a danger to anyone in the vicinity.
The NSW Government will monitor the safety and traffic impacts of the rule over a 12-month trial period in consultation with NSW Police, emergency service organisations and other stakeholders.
You can find more information in our FAQs.

Key messages of the campaign
•         For everyone's safety, motorists must slow down to 40km/h when passing stationary emergency vehicles displaying blue or red flashing lights
•         The rule applies to vehicles travelling in both directions, unless the road is divided by a median strip
•         Motorists who do not comply with the rule will face a $448 fine and three demerit points.
Police, firefighters, ambulance officers, State Emergency Service and rescue volunteers perform difficult and dangerous work for the community. But just like everyone doing their job, they should feel safe and know that they are protected at work.
