Today on 26 September 2019, Sarah’s Rule becomes law in New South Wales following a year long trial. The rule mandates drivers to slow down and move over at a car crash, when an emergency service vehicle has lights flashing or if someone has broken down.
If in an 80km/hr zone or below, drivers must reduce their speed to 40 or face a fine. In over 90km/h zones, drivers must slow to a safe and reasonable speed give plenty of space and change lanes if it's safe.
We are very grateful to the NSW Government and pledge to keep working until this legislation is in every state across Australia.
