Rules for keeping animals safe

It’s important to understand what you can do to ensure animals are kept safe on our roads. Find out about pets in cars, horse riding, helping an injured animal and giving way to livestock and cattle.

The summaries RACV provide on Victorian road rules are based on the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017. We make sure to reference the exact rule where possible. When reading, keep in mind that we’re providing general information, not legal advice. If you’re looking for specific questions on any legal matter, consult with a lawyer for help.
