There are no surprises.

Misunderstood road rules include those associated with roundabouts, use of mobile phones, merging, keeping left, u-turns and yellow traffic lights.

The information is worth looking at, even as a refresher to make sure that your understanding of the road rules is up to date.

New Road Numbering System

Posted in Traffic
Monday, 29 October 2012

RMS (formerly the RTA) is introducing a new system of road numbering and new names for some important routes. The changes will commence in early 2013 and should be fully implemented by the end of that year.

The changes are simple in that they apply a letter and number code to Motorways (M), roads of national significance (A) and roads of state significance (B). The numbers identify the different motorways or roads within each category.

The changes will make navigation on major routes much simpler. For example, if want to drive to Broken Hill from Sydney, you will simply follow the A32 the whole way. If you want to drive from Sydney to Walgett you join the B55 and follow it through to Walgett.

The changes are consistent with systems in most other states so that the same code will apply as roads cross into those states.

Name changes will apply to some major roads, however the changes are not significant and should not have a major impact.

More information is available on the RMS website.

Rego Labels Abolished

Posted in Licencing & Registration
Saturday, 23 June 2012

The NSW State Government has announced that registration labels for light vehicles will be abolished from 1 January 2013.

From that date registration labels will no longer be required for cars, motorbikes and trucks with a GVM up to 4.5 tonnes.

Registration labels are not a reliable indication that a vehicle is validly registered and in any case police check vehicle registration regardless of the label.

The RMS has introduced a facility for checking vehicle registration. If you go to the free registration check page of the RMS website and enter a vehicle registation number, you will receive information on the registration status and on the current greenslip insurer for that vehicle.
