Livestock on Public roads April 2016

Livestock on public roads

Livestock on roads can present risks to the public and stock handlers. It is the responsibility of both the livestock owner and road user to be vigilant when travelling on roads that are regularly used for grazing or moving stock.

Municipal councils and state road authorities administer guidelines for farmers, drovers and other people who may require a permit; or who are exempted by a local law from the need to have a permit to have stock on roads or road reserves.
