    Q601: Is it illegal to drive a car with a broken speedometer?

    A vehicle's speedometer shall at all times it is used on a road be maintained in good working order. The only exceptions to this are when:

    • the speedometer became defective during the journey being undertaken, or
    • steps have been taken to have the defect remedied by replacement or repair with all reasonable expedition.
