Bulls, Nudges and RTA


Quick note to say the crackdown on Bullbars, Nudgebars ect within NSW is definitely in progress. Check out the RTA site for "legal requirements" but if it protrudes outside the front of your bar - you are open to a defect notice.
Its not just fishing rodholders either. I know off a few people who have been zapped. Including spotlights. Yep a set of LFs on a arb bar using the fitted brackets.
Probably a bit late for some, but if you are thinking along those lines (as in big exposed lights, may be worth to check whats ok for your bar against the RTAs requirements.

EDIT: Corresponding RTA URLs are shown below:

So what are they going to do about interstate registered vehicles ?

Sounds like to me that some little hitler desk jockey is trying to justify his/ her existence?

Re: Bulls, Nudges and RTA


So the fact that my big spotties are made of plastic, have absolutely NO sharp edges whatsoever, and would bend backwards to a point behind the front of the nudgebar in the instance of an impact, you would think that would be adequate argument in being "let off" from that law?

I wonder what next - sharp edges on roof racks being a crime? If you're going to hit a pedestrian that hard they're going to reach the roofracks, chances are they've already sustained multiple serious injuries...

As for pen-pushers justifying their existence - The main problem still exists - that pedestrians shouldn't be walking out in front of vehicles! I'd say more often than not, that it's the pedestrian's fault - I doubt "aggressive drivers of 4WD fitted with bull-bars" are driving on the footpath in search of their next victim... They should be educating the pedestrians rather than discriminating against owners of vehicles with bull-bars...

And for all those idiots that insist on claiming damages for being hit by a vehicle fitted with a bull-bar - fortunately for them that the law is in favour of their stupidity!
