Foreword to Australian Road Rules
The agreement by the Australian Transport Council, comprising Australia’sTransport and Roads Ministers, to commence introduction of national roadrules from December 1999, is a milestone in Australia’s transportationhistory and something that has eluded traffic planners and law makers for over 50 years.The new rules will affect almost everyone in Australia because of thedominant influence our roads, cars and other vehicles have on our lives. Theinitiative has an added significance with Australia being one of the mostmotorised nations in the world.When fully implemented, almost all road rules will be consistent throughoutAustralia, eliminating dozens of differences at State and Territory borders -many of these road law differences have existed purely for historicalreasons.Common rules of the road will make travel easier for international touristsand for people living in border towns, travelling interstate on holiday and on business, and when shifting interstate. The new laws will also help lower thenational road toll by eliminating much of the confusion when driving inother States and Territories.While they involve some significant changes, many other changes have beenmade to existing rules to simplify and make them easier to learn andobserve. To further aid simplicity and clarity, colour diagrams have beenused extensively throughout the document, a first for traffic law in Australia.Traffic law, like other areas of the law, is constantly evolving and allgovernments have committed to a process to ensure that necessary changesare made to the rules to ensure that they continue to remain up-to-date andconsistent. All governments have the ability to retain some flexibility inamending the national rules to better match local conditions, but this is notexpected to detract significantly from the seamless operation of road rulesacross Australia.The rules were developed by the National Road Transport Commission inconsultation with all Australian governments through their transportagencies and police, the Commonwealth Office of Legislative Drafting, theParliamentary Counsel’s Committee and many other stakeholders. TheCommission is indebted to these organisations and their representatives for their great contribution to the successful development of the rules. National traffic laws are the product of this great cooperative effort and will be a fitting symbol of our maturity as a nation as the centenary of Australia’sfederation approaches.Stuart HicksChairman National Road Transport Commission19 October 1999
