New Bull Regulations

Make sure your bull bar is legal

Some bull bars being used in NSW do not comply with laws introduced in 2003. Our Bull bar tolerances and conditions document (PDF, 708Kb) provides clear advice about the types of bull bars that are allowed on NSW roads. Dangerous bull bars pose a greater risk to pedestrians and other road users.

Two year exemption

There will be a two-year exemption period to allow drivers to have their bull bar checked and if necessary, modified or replaced. This will allow dangerous bull bars to be taken off NSW roads, without punishing people who have unknowingly bought non-compliant bars.

Clearer guidelines

We are working to provide better guidance to the public and manufacturers about the types of bull bars that are allowed in NSW. We are also working with the police and other enforcement officers to provide clear advice on bull bar regulations.

More information

Detailed information on bull bar compliance is available in AS 4876.1-2002 Motor vehicle frontal protection systems Part 1: Road user protection, available on the Standards Australia website.

Standards Australia is the nation's main non-government standards organisation. It is charged by the Commonwealth Government to meet Australia's need for contemporary, internationally aligned standards and related services.

Nice to see a bit of common sense from our road authorities - the 2 year grace period should allow anyone to sort their rig out, and a bit of well written doco makes it easy to work out if you have a problem in the first place.

So where is the trap - we are not used to this sort of behavior from governments :wink: :wink:
