Relaxing motorbike rules

As of July 1 NSW are relaxing the rules on motorbikes to allow lane filtering. This means motorbikes can legally travel between queuing lines of traffic as long as the speed is below 30 kph. This is simply making legal what has been the case for some time, but there are limitations and , importantly,motorbikes will not be allowed to lane filter around trucks.

While we are on the subject of road rules this video needs to be shown much more often. The drivers of Australia seem to have collective amnesia about the traffic rules on roundabouts. One day, they will get it, but until then their cars will get sandwiched by trucks doing the right thing, on a regular basis.
