There are a few simple rules members are expected to observe while travelling.
- Do not travel in close convoy on public roads.
- Pull over as soon as possible when a trailing line has formed behind you.
- Communication between NZMCA members while travelling on CB is usually to tune to Channel 24; with deregulation you could use your NZMCA number as your call sign, e.g. NZMCA 2356 calling NZMCA 1935.
