This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 April 2006, amend the Traffic Regulations 1976 (
“the principal regulations”) by
•revoking the heading above regulation 90A, regulations 90A to 90LA, and regulations 90N to 90Q (which relate to alternative fuel systems); and
•substituting new regulations 90R and 90S; and
•revoking regulations 90T to 90ZC (which relate to vehicle identification numbers); and
•amending regulation 90ZD.
These amendments are a result of matters relating to alternative fuel systems and vehicle identification numbers (which were previously dealt with in the principal regulations) being dealt with in Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Standards Compliance 2002 (35001/1).
Despite these amendments, regulations 90A to 90ZD of the principal regulations (as they were immediately before 1 April 2006) continue to apply to any person who, before these regulations came into force, committed, or may have committed, an offence against any of regulations 90N to 90Q or regulation 90ZD.
