Review of the Australian road rules submission

16 August 2013

The National Transport Commission (NTC) should work towards a nationally consistent application of the law in its review of the Australian Road Rules and Australian Vehicle Standards Rules, the ATA has said in its latest submission.

The submission says that moving to an applied law approach for the Australian Road Rules would improve uniformity, and produce better road safety outcomes for Australia.

It recommends that the NTC should use the national heavy vehicle regulator model as a mechanism for transitioning from the current model law to an applied law approach.
