In Australia, the National Insurance Scheme is responsible for covering most costs associated with driving a car.
It covers the cost of insurance for cars, as well as for private hire vehicles.
However, many Australians may not know that their car insurance is also covered by a national roadside assistance scheme.
That is because Australian drivers may be covered by different types of roadside assistance schemes.
One type of roadside help is called the National Roadside Assistance Scheme, which provides roadside assistance in addition to national road safety, such as the NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).
However, the scheme is not mandatory.
This is because a variety of factors, including a lack of resources, are responsible for the scheme not being required to be covered under National Road Safety (NRT).
Another type of road safety support provided through the scheme, the Victorian Road Safety Assistance Scheme (VRSAS), is also voluntary, but it is mandatory.
For example, a VRSAS driver can use a tow car to tow a car over a certain distance, provided they have a tow vehicle in their vehicle.
If the car cannot be towed safely, they can be fined.
However this is not compulsory.
In addition to VRSAs, drivers can get help from roadside assistance for non-driving costs, such towing, repairs, or the costs of insurance, such in the event of an accident.
