Rules for portable, mounted and wearable devices

On this page, we’ll address the most common road safety questions we receive on using technology on the road. The overarching principle is don’t touch your unmounted or wearable device while you’re driving or riding. 

A summary of the rules can be found on the VicRoads website.

The summaries RACV provide on Victorian road rules are effective as at 31 March 2023. Please check the VicRoads website for any recent updates or changes to road laws which may have occurred since this date.
