Project background

The model ARRs form the basis of road rules of each Australian state and territory. They contain the basic rules for all road users and specify behaviour that supports the safe and efficient use of roads in Australia. 
We are responsible for developing and maintaining the Australian Road Rules. However, they are a model law and, as such, must be adopted into local state and territory laws to take legal effect.

Visit the ARRs page for more details.
