One of BBUG’s members recently obtained an exemption and this is what they learned…
The road rules say:
Rule 250(1A)(b) amended by S.R. No. 96/2019 rule 11(5).
(b) the rider of the bicycle is 13 years old or older and—
(i) has a certificate signed by a registered medical practitioner; and
(ii) the certificate states that the rider has a disability or medical condition which makes it undesirable, impracticable or inexpedient for the rider to ride on the road; and
(iii) the rider is complying with the conditions (if any) stated on the certificate; and
(iv) if the disability or medical condition is of a temporary nature, the certificate contains an expiry date and has not expired; and
(v) the rider is carrying the certificate; and
(vi) the rider produces the certificate when requested to do so by a police officer or authorised person;
Road Rule 250 1A(b) provides for a medical exemption for footpath riding issued by a registered medical practitioner on the basis of Disability or Medical Condition and worded as set out in the rules.
