New eRideable rules roll in ready for Christmas

News for the Department of Transport


New laws on the use of eRideables will come into effect on December 4, leading to greater consistency with other jurisdictions, reflecting recent amendments to the Australian Road Rules and ensuring the State's road rules keep up with changes in technology.

eRideables are electric powered devices not capable of travelling faster than 25 km/h and include e-scooters, electric unicycles, electric skateboards, electric roller skates, one-wheel electric scooters and hoverboards.
