24-4 NSW rule: speed limits for small motor bikes during periods of darkness
(1) The speed limit applying to the rider of a motor bike on any length of
road during a period of darkness is:
(a) if the engine capacity of the bike
does not exceed 100 millilitres--40 kilometres per hour, or
(b) if the engine
capacity of the bike exceeds 100 millilitres but does not exceed 200
millilitres--50 kilometres per hour, unless another lesser speed limit applies
to the rider for the length of road under another rule of this Part.
"Length" of road and
"motor bike" are defined in the Dictionary.
(2) This rule does not apply to
any motor bike that is fitted with a headlight having an effective range of at
least 50 metres.
(3) This rule has effect despite any other rule in this Part
that specifies a speed limit applying to a driver for a length of road that is
greater than the speed limit applying to the driver under this rule.
"headlight" has the same meaning as in Division 1 of Part 13.
"period of darkness" has the same meaning as in Division 1 of Part 13.
This rule is an additional NSW road rule. There is no corresponding rule in
the Australian Road Rules .
