    RACCA Australia published an article today on the variety of changes that will be taking place throughout the country from tomorrow onwards. These changes include:

    • The minimum wage increase
    • Superannuation changes
    • Power price increases
    • The introduction of a Netflix tax
    • The abolishing of the green outgoing passenger card for international travel
    • A partial unfreezing of the Medicare rebate
    • The abolishing of stamp duty for first home buyers in Victoria
    • The increase of the Foreign Investor Surcharge Duty, and
    • The increase in annual land tax

     

    Five new road rules will also come into effect in Victoria from tomorrow onwards. These new road rules are:

     

    • On-the-spot fines for cyclists using mobile phones.
    • New give-way rules for vehicles at intersections with bike crossing lights.
    • Cyclists and coaches will be permitted to use bus lanes.
    • The rule prohibiting people from driving with an empty bicycle carrier attached to the back of their vehicle has been removed.
    • Cyclists and motorists must slow down to 40 km/h for emergency services vehicles (this doesn’t apply when the vehicles are on the other side of a median strip).

     

    According to News.com.au, the Victorian State Government said that the changes to these road rules are aimed at “tidying up existing road rules and formalising current practices, and that the emergency services road rule was developed through consultation with a working group of emergency services and enforcement agencies, as well as other parties, over 18 months.”

    News.com.au’s article can be read in full here.
