Australian road rules

Proclaimed 1 December 1999

On 1 December 1999, the NSW Government proclaimed the new Australian Road Rules.

New road rules commenced in New South Wales on 1 December 1999. These new rules include the Australian Road Rules (ARRs) which are a basically consistent set of rules which apply right across Australia and make it easier all round for road users.

The ARRs were developed by the National Road Transport Commission, State and Territory transport agencies, police, other organisations and approved by a majority vote of State Transport Ministers in February 1999.
