The Australian police have recently clarified rumours circulating on social media about the legality of driving with an arm out of a car window.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no law that specifically prohibits drivers from having their arm out of a car window while driving. However, it is important for drivers to ensure that they are in full control of their vehicle at all times and not engaging in any behavior that could be considered reckless or dangerous.
In fact, the only regulation regarding this issue is that all drivers must maintain proper control of their vehicle, and avoid any behaviour which may distract them or other road users. This includes activities such as using a mobile phone while driving or eating food behind the wheel.
The police strongly encourage all drivers to exercise caution when on the road to ensure their own safety as well as that of other motorists and pedestrians. Drivers should also familiarize themselves with local traffic laws and regulations to avoid any misunderstandings or violations.
