    Rules & Regs for using CB Radios while driving.

    The rules for using CB radio microphones in different states. This topic came up on an Amateur Radio group & I thought I would share it here. While there is no defining rule for the use of CB or radio microphones while driving the only mention in the rules comes under Mobile Phone use.

    With the exception of the Northern Territory who do not have a defined rule on this all other states clearly state "mobile phone does not include a CB radio or any other two-way radio".

    NSW - http://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/#/.../div1/rule.300 (Section 4)

    ACT - http://www.legislation.act.gov.au/sl...df/2000-10.pdf (Page 33 Section 30B (3)

    VIC - https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%...birEc3J9f-WfBg (Page 411 Part 18 (4)

    SA - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/s...r210/s300.html (Section 300) (4)

    QLD - https://www.legislation.qld.gov.au/L...ntOpRURR09.pdf (Page 299 Section 300) (2)

    WA - https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https...w-tZLNZ3PWtefw (Page 276 Section 265) (2)

    TAS - http://www.thelaw.tas.gov.au/print/i...10000000;rec=0 (Section 300) (2)

    NT - http://www.darwin.nt.gov.au/sites/de...egulations.pdf (Page 13 Section 15A)

    The overriding rule for using a microphone is that you must "Operate a vehicle with due care", so you can still be fined if you are found not to be in full control of a vehicle.

    Knowing the rules might just help in avoiding a fine.
