Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone knows the legality of amber roof lights? I assume that being able to buy them from the local car parts shop means anyoneis allowed to use them and they aren't designated for specific duties (like Red/Blue lights).

Permits or anything for them?

Cheers,

Tom

Yes I am talking about those ones, like the RAA (NRMA etc) have on their vans.

I have researched the law and this is what it says:

ROAD TRAFFIC (VEHICLE STANDARDS) RULES 1999 - REG 118

118—Other lights and reflectors

(1) In this rule:

"exempt vehicle" means:

(a) a police vehicle; or

(b) an emergency vehicle.

"special use vehicle" means:

(a) a vehicle built, fitted or acquired for a special use that when so used may result in a hazardous situation on a road; or

(b) a vehicle, or combination, that because of its dimensions is permitted to be driven on a road only in accordance with an oversize or overmass vehicle exemption (see section 115 of the Road Traffic Act 1961 ); or

(c) a vehicle built or fitted to accompany a vehicle, or combination, mentioned in paragraph (b); or

(d) a bus fitted, before July 1999, with a sign telling road users that the bus carries children.

Examples of special use vehicles to which paragraph (a) applies—

1 Tow trucks.

2 Vehicle breakdown service vehicles.

3 Weed spraying vehicles.

4 Power driven lawn mowers.

5 Animal rescue vehicles.

6 Vehicles used by primary producers droving stock between paddocks.

7 Buses fitted for use on the track commonly known as the O-Bahn busway.

(2) A vehicle may be fitted with a light or reflector not mentioned in the Vehicle Standards only if another law of this jurisdiction allows that light or reflector to be fitted.

(3) However, unless subrule (4) applies, a vehicle must not be fitted with:

(a) a light that flashes; or

(b) a light or reflector that:

(i) shows a red light to the front; or

(ii) shows a white light to the rear; or

(iii) is shaped or located in a way that reduces the effectiveness of a light or reflector that is required to be fitted to the vehicle under the Vehicle Standards.

(4) Despite any requirement of a third edition ADR:

(a) an exempt vehicle may be fitted with any light or reflector;

(b) a special use vehicle may be fitted with 1 or more flashing yellow lights;

(c) a State Government enforcement vehicle may be fitted with 1 or more flashing magenta lights.

So basically, no, unless you are a 'special purpose vehicle'

Well I was doing a school assignment that involved filming near and on a busy road. I have road cones, just wanted to make sure no one got hurt. Turns out we couldnt stop the car where we were filming (solid yellow line) so it wasnt necessary.
