    I can tell you, the internet and the rules booklet for road rules doesn't teach people much.....here's 2 examples

    Example 1: 17 year old goes for learners permit in the city...Has alcohol limit question for a learner and P plater....They answer zero....gets it correct

    Example 2: Again 17 year old going for learners permit, this time in the country 2 months after the city slicker....Gets the same question....Replies the same answer and gets it wrong....Told the answer is .05.

    Then we go to speed limits around emergency vehicles in South Australia....Read the internet and the road rule book and they stipulate it's 40 KPH.....The actual answer is 25 KPH (been that way for approximately 9 months)....And yes, city slicker got the same question, replied it was 25 KPH and was marked wrong...Told it was 40 KPH.

    Fortunately, for the city slicker, his parent was there and mentioned to the tester to go have a look at the back of an ambo, or a fire truck and then mark the city slicker wrong again.

    So the internet and road rule book isn't the right answer....It's really upto the older generation to teach them properly

    Nope....All I know it's the site you go to learn the road rules, prior to going for your learners permit.

    The link you've put up, was started when the speed limit was changed, to help inform drivers of the changes and the consequences of it.

    I just searched 'emegency vehicle speed' and thats what came up ;)
    So anyone going for their license and searching will know the new rules, not the 40k as you suggested :)

    It's online, where all new learners learn the road rules, prior to going for the test (basically the old road rules booklet, yet online)....NOT the emergency vehicle speed site you're looking at.

    My son only went for his learners 6 months ago and he showed me the answer shown on the website.....I was also the one, that said to the tester about marking him wrong over the speed limit...It was also my son and my niece that had the alcohol questions I previously mentioned about......It just so happened, the transport office he did his test at, has a fire station situated right across the road from it and the ambo station is about 3 K down the road


    But you'd know better....You're an internet expert

    I do know better, you said it says something (on the internet), and i searched (on the internet) and it says something different.

    Rather than bitch and moan about it here, how about mentioning it to them so it can be fixed?

    Problem is, you didn't read what I said.....Unless, the only question for a learners permit is the speed past an emergency vehicle

    And yes, I did say something, but again, you didn't read what I said

    I can read fine, your writing skills, not so good!

    All you said was 'the internet'. I searched 'on the internet' and got that result. It was only after that that you elaborated that it was on a specific site, not a general search in google (I did elaborate where i found the info ;))

    Once again, stop bitching and moaning about it here, and be proactive and let the people know who should fix the specific site that your post relates!

    I just went to the site for new drivers, and low and behold, that also says 25k for emergency vehicles when you highlight the 'road rules' tab ;)

    If you were stopped and somebody reversed into you who would you blame?
    You clearly reversed into him so you're 100%at fault

    I think its a reverse park only area. All the other cars in the video are reversed parked and the angle of the park would make it near impossible to drive nose first in on a first attempt.
    Having said that, i do agree the OP is in the wrong..
