COMMON
SENSE ROAD
RULES

Take the Survey

The Liberal Nationals believe road rules should be based on common sense.

Recently, too many road rules have been designed by bureaucrats. Some of their ideas might be good on paper, but in the real world they create more problems than they fix.

Too often under Labor, motorists have been cut out of decision-making on speed limits and road rules. Changes have been made haphazardly, without any public consultation, and have been either announced with short notice or not announced at all.

It also creates confusion which means dangerous driving conditions and unsafe roads.

We want to know what you think about a range of issues, including red lights on freeway merges, differential speed limits for trucks, and freeway speed limits.

We also want your ideas for rules that should be changed, or new rules that you think should be introduced. We’ll announce our policies on these issues, once we’ve taken your feedback on board.

Which of these do you support?

RED LIGHTS ON FREEWAYS

Do you support the recent installation of red lights on freeway merges?

RED LIGHTS ON FREEWAYS

Should red lights on freeway merges be replaced with variable speed limit signs?

OVERSEAS DRIVERS

Do you support better informative measures to ensure foreign drivers are sufficiently educated on Victorian road rules prior to being allowed to drive in Victoria?

ELECTRONIC FREEWAY SPEED SIGNS

On metropolitan freeways with variable speed signs, do you support a default speed limit of 100km/h, with lower speeds to only apply in tunnels or when managing traffic incidents and road conditions?

ROADWORKS

Do you support changes requiring roadwork speed limits to only be in force when roadworks are actually occurring?

LOCAL ROADS

Do you support moves by inner-Melbourne Labor/Greens Councils to reduce speeds on local roads to 30km/h or less?

LEFT TURN ON RED

Do you support a trial to allow motorists to make ‘left turns on red’ at some intersections, as practiced in other Australian states?

KEEP LEFT UNLESS OVERTAKING

Do you support changes to ensure ‘keep left unless overtaking’ is enforced?

FLASHING 40KM/H SIGNS

Do you support changes to flashing 40km/h speed signs that are located in shopping strips, so that they only operate during business hours?

70KM/H SPEED ZONES

Do you support the reintroduction of 70km/h speed zones that previously applied on some roads, including Bell Street in Melbourne’s inner north?

TRAMS

Do you support changes to rules, signage and other measures to further separate trams and motor vehicles?

PARKING

Do you support changes to simplify parking rules and signage?

RURAL LEARNER DRIVERS

Do you support separate learning requirements for young learner drivers in rural Victoria to better equip them to recognise hazards unique to Victoria’s rural roads?

PUBLIC EDUCATION

Do you believe more public education is required on Victoria’s road rules?

Which road rules do you believe need to be changed or simplified?
