New Victorian Road Rules of interest

Post by Jules Pearce on Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:32 am

Today’s (13 July) Age newspaper has some info about the Victorian Road Rules, based on a RACV publication. Below are two rules re motorcycles of relevance to us.
Road rule 270 - Wearing motor bike helmets
Motorcycle riders are now allowed to move their bike without a helmet, as long as the engine is off or they are pushing it.
The rule states that it has to be safe in the circumstances not to wear a helmet. 
Road rule 271 - Riding on motorbikes and motorcycles
A modification to this rule makes it legal for riders to stretch their legs.
It's now legal to stand up on a bike while it's moving, as long as both feet are on the foot pegs.
Riders can also lift one leg up, as long as their bum remains on the seat.
