Check the flag holder
Before moving your vehicle, you should first check for proper seating of the flag holder. Also verify that all screw joints are secure. It should not be possible for the flag holder to move at all.
After driving for a short distance, check the screw joints again for the first time, and them at regular intervals depending on road conditions, and tighten them as necessary.
Do not drive faster than 100km/h.
Only use our original flags
They are approx, 20 x 30 cm in size and weigh a maximum of 25g.
Heavier or larger flags increase wind load and can lead to loosening of the flag stands.
Never mount any other objects on the flag holder.
Safety distance to magnets
The flag holder has a very strong magnet. Strong magnets can affect heart pacemakers, therefore they should be kept at a distance. Please note that strong magnets may also damage data storage media. Here too, keep such media at a safe distance.
New road rules commenced in New South Wales on 1 December 1999. These rules included the Australian Road Rules (ARRs) which are a basically consistent set of rules which apply right across Australia and make it easier all round for road users.
The ARRs were developed by the National Road Transport Commission, State and Territory transport agencies, police, other organisations and approved by a majority vote of State Transport Ministers in February 1999.
In New South Wales, there were some changes, mainly of a minor nature.
Road rule changes
The "Changes to Road Rules in NSW Guide" provides more detailed information about the road rules introduced into NSW in 1999.
The "New Road Rules for NSW" brochure provides a summary of the key road rule changes. This brochure was delivered to households throughout NSW in late November 1999.
