A new road rule is now in place in NSW to improve the safety of emergency workers, as well as the people they are protecting. The new rule requires motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing a stationary emergency vehicle displaying blue or red flashing lights. Queensland has not passed this rule at this stage.
Partly cloudy. Slight chance of a shower near the coast, increasing to a medium chance about the islands. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Light winds becoming E 15 to 25 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the late evening. Overnight temperatures falling to between 10 and 15 with daytime temperatures reaching 24 to 29.
