THE 3m RULE
In some Australian states, you can get a fine for not locking your door.
In NSW, drivers can be fined if they leave their car unlocked, but importantly there’s a caveat. To be fined, you would have to move more than 3m away their vehicle. Drivers can also be fined for not securing their windows, and walking away. A window is considered “secure” if it is open by up to 2cm.
In Queensland and Victoria, the gap cannot be more than 5cm.
