Barriers to the safe use of innovative vehicles and mobility devices

This project aims to address the issues surrounding the safe and legal use of new and innovative personal-use and mobility devices. The current regulatory framework does not provide for the use of new and innovative personal-use devices that are readily available for sale today as they do not necessarily fit within existing vehicle classification. This also affects individuals that require the use of mobility devices due to technical restrictions set out in the Australian Road Rules.

Submissions responding to the issues paper are now open. Feedback will be analysed and used to prepare a discussion paper for release in June 2019.
