Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has welcomed the release of the Ministerial Order to provide clear information about which bull bars are allowed on NSW roads to address the issue of non-compliance in the Tamworth region.


Mr Anderson said motorists in the region had been subject to a recent police compliance campaign.


“My office received many complaints from concerned motorists who had purchased five poster bull bars in good faith and were now being told they are not compliant with NSW regulations.


“This was a big issue not only in the Tamworth Electorate but right across the state and as a result the Roads Minister Duncan Gay issued a two year exemption order to provide clarity around the issue.


“Vehicle owners who have inadvertently fitted a non-complying bull bar to their vehicle or are unsure about their bull bar compliance, will have two years to have their bull bar inspected by Roads and Maritime Services.  


"This exemption is about ensuring vehicle owners, who thought that they were doing the right thing, aren't disadvantaged


“I am encouraging those will bull bars to have it checked and, if necessary, modified or replaced.
