Three new legislative amendments have been implemented to assist vehicle passengers who have a disability or a medical condition.

The amendments, by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), relate to loading zone drop off times for people with a disability and restraints in motor vehicles for children with a disability or medical conditions.

Vehicles can stop in a loading zone when they are dropping off or picking up a passenger with a disability – for no more than five minutes.

The changes include temporary and long-term exemption for a child with a medical condition or a physical disability that are not able to use a compliant child restraint or seatbelt.
