Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) is committed to supplying residents with information relating to road safety. Council through it’s Road Safety Officer (RSO), run a number of Road Safety initiatives and programs throughout the year.
Council has now added a page to the CGRC Website – Know Your Road Rules. The page has links to videos clips, the Top 10 misunderstood road rules in NSW, and a host of information on Dividing Lines.
One subject, crossing a double dividing line, outlines what is allowable, which has caused some confusion amongst residents.
