NRMA and police union backflip on controversial road rule

Safety issues have emerged during a trial of new laws forcing drivers to slow to 40km/h when passing stopped emergency service vehicles.

There’s concern about the danger in making drivers suddenly hit their brakes on a busy highway.

After campaigning for their introduction, police and the NRMA are backflipping on the ‘Slow Down, Move Over’ laws.

NSW Police Association President Tony King says the 40-km speed limit should be dropped, and a more general rule imposed for drivers to slow down.

He tells Ben Fordham it’s about “common sense legislation¬†“.

“It was never meant to be about speed or speed restrictions, it’s was about slow down, move over.”
