The changes to rules from 1/11/2012 are listed in the pdf at http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/usingroads/downloads/nsw_road_rules_2012.pdf The mobile phone rule has been publicised a lot but not the others AFAIK. Many of the others I thought were already in existence. There is one that relates to GPS use and mounting which would be applicable to GPS software in a phone. Would this apply to bikes and would a "fixed mounting" include a clear tank bag pocket? I've never used a GPS on the Bike but might someday and have thought of just sticking it in my pocket and listening. Also, on use of mobile phones (this is as is AFAIK) What's the explicit definition of "parked"? I'd think it would be ok to pull off the road, turn off the engine and then maybe make a call but would you need to also get off the bike if you wanted to hold the phone to make a call? Is there a requirement for a helmet to be on every time you are seated on the bike in a public place? Safest way I'd figure would be to park it, get off and then make a call but I might like to just sit on the bike in the carpark at the headland and call while watching the waves.
