Speed limits and speed zones

Speed limits indicate the maximum speed allowed, not the speed you should necessarily travel at. You should always drive for the conditions, such as in extreme weather conditions or in areas of reduced visibility.

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.
