soona.
I dont think you will have any problems as long as you do not run into (or over) one Mr Scruby.

Wouldn't it be ironic if that was the manner in which Scruby departed this earth?
I can see the headlines now, "Bullbar Scrubs Scruby".
You would have to have a chuckle.

I doubt very much wether they would be illegal just in Sydney.

Just to clarify in the off chance that you don’t know what a 5 poster is, It is the bar that a lot of the Country Utes (Falcon/Commodore) have fitted Mostly custom made and probably weigh in at like 150Kg LOL, you see them all the time in country WA around the Wheatbelt commonly referred to as a B&S Ute.

You know one when you see it Big ass Bar lots of lights, minimum of 3 aerials loud as a night at the drags. Pack of whinny Blues on the dash along with a assortment of spent and live amunition from last nights roo shooting experdition and covered in stickers to the likes of “If Ya gona Root do it in a Ute”, “OBH, AN’T Nothing like a Country Crowd”

Scruby would be running for the hills if he sore one of these Babies cruising the streets of suburban Sydney.

You forgot the beer mat from the bar at the local pub, cleverly utilised as a dash mat.

Exploder,

There are already plenty of them cruising the streets of Sydney (suburbs anyway, if not the actual CBD).

Soonaswecan,

Try NSW RTA as a starting point. As with all Government sites, it's easy to get lost in all the gobbledegook. Good luck

Soonaswecan,

I will assume this is not a trick question.

As long as the bull bar meets ADR then there is no problem. If bull bars were baned in Sydney, ARB and TJM would be out of business.

Soonaswecan,

That's right they are now illegal. No country folk will be allowed to drive their 4wd's to the city unless they stop at one of the many Bull Bar substitution centres where a pedestrian friendly absorbing bumper will be temporally installed for a low minimum fee. This will be tax deductible for commercially used vehicles.

PS. What a croc!!

Yes and I hear they are building special centres at Dubbo and Lithogow and Goulbourn and Newcastle just to accommodate the B-Double's bullbars. Special forklifts and cranes have to be used in the changeover which according to reliable sources states it will only take 20 minutes.

So what you are saying is true, that bullbars are illegal in NSW. or do you mean in the city district? So wat about those of us that decide to drive to NSW to visit someone who lives in an outer suburb? Does that mean that unless you are out bush you cannot have a bull bar.... Well that really sux!

Joanne,

Just so there is no confusion. Bull bars are allowed all over Australia. Country and city.

hey Wayne...

Now that makes sense! I know here in Brisbane there was talk a while ago that they were thinking of trying to ban 4WD from around schools because of jay walking kids, but nothing more seems to have been said about it, but yeh they can't ban bullbars in city areas, I mean really how much of a bother would that be to so many people.

Jo,

Not worth believing all that you read on this website and others. Some people like pulling your leg, if there is a topic that concerns you I would urge you to do a bit of homework on the matter before you take someone's word as gospel.

Trevor.
