Road Rules many do not know

I was surprised I knew most of these rules

The one I partially did not know:

— Motorists, passengers and cyclists must not lead an animal, including by tethering the animal to the motor vehicle.

I see that one broken all the time, big fast dogs can travel much faster then a human, not sure how you would exercise them properly otherwise.

No only rules about helmets, you see it a lot with these step through vespa looking bikes.

A helmet will only save your life in a low speed accident, at a high speed accident pure luck is about the only thing that might save you.
They should make those spine hump things compulsory, the racers wear them and many serious riders.

Forget about the obscure rules. The everyday ones are just as misunderstood. There is always confusion at roundabouts. Makes it hard since I can't read minds.

Can there be a road rule about people not picking their nose in the car?  Nose pickers should lose demerit points

Yuck

It isn't only indicating. Half don't seem to know who gives way to who so they give way to everybody and hold up the works.

Its kind of proof that police quotas are not wide spread they could just sit at any busy roundabout for an hour then go to the pub !

There is one I could not nail down on the NSW Gov site ..... but should be a rule, if you are turning put you indicator on first then brake. A lot of drivers seem to have some weird blinker usage minimisation process of some kind or not at all.

I think there is a minimum time period prior to turning that you have to indicate.

At a roundabout you indicate when you have passed the last intersection just before you exit!!!

Entrapment is rife on Australian roads

Setting up the system to raise revenue

This is demonstrably obvious with the ongoing and continued speed limit changes, often many times in a few klm.

Often these changes are indicated by a single sign, which, if obscured by a truck and not see, results in a lucritive income for the grubberment.

School zones where the nearest school is in a backstreet over 1\2 klm from the road on which the camera is set up.

School zones around universities
If our teachers are too incompetent to teach uni students enough to not walk on to the road, and if our uni students are too stooopid to not realize that they are not as solid as a vehicle, there is no hope for the future.

Mobile speed cameras on two and three lane roads, with unrealistically slow speeds and always, ALWAYS set up on the downhill run while hidden in the scrub and signs that ALWAYS seem to have fallen over.

It's nothing to do with safety
Absolutely nothing to do with safety
Getting a fine weeks or months after the incident is irresponsible.

Finally,
If govco was serious about saving lives
They would chase drug and drunk drivers.
Not the token few they test occasionally
But some serious and ongoing testing, but that costs money and govco only want to collect money, not save lives.

But many choose to brake first then indicate...... not a timing issue its a sequence issue.

That is very problematic in the pokey little suburban roundabouts unless you do less than 10kph.
