Don't ask me why they've decided on this; I think it's a pedantic rule. It's not like Aussies and Americans have different reaction speeds, etc.

I haven't sussed it out but I would say in the newer model, even if sequential; one of the three lights stays on while the other two follow in sequence.

Appreciate the info. You have me curious now.

Spoke to the guy who does my rego checks about this today. He is pretty much a stickler for the rules and rightly so. He has not heard anything from RMS about it.
