New road rules in Victoria from July 1

30 June 2017

The State Government has announced four new road rules including on-the-spot fines for cyclists using phones, new give-way rules for vehicles at intersections with bike crossing lights, and cyclists and charter coaches being allowed to use bus lanes.

The new rules are in addition to the recently announced rule that drivers must slow to 40km/h for emergency services vehicles.

RACV has called on the State Government to give road users more notice of changes to road rules.

The new rules come into effect on 1 July, just days after being announced.
