JUST A THOUGHT
THE NHVR has kicked off a month-long consultation program to allow operators and drivers to have some input into a change in regulation allowing an exemption to driving hours.
In a media release of Sal Petroccitto’s announcement at the Nat Road conference at Hamilton Island of all places – now there’s a place that symbolises road transport today – he announced co-ordinated enforcement operations with a target of work diaries.
With the confusion in filling out logbooks and making calculations based on the 24-hour rule has been identified in recent weeks, as well as the fact many logbook transgressions are an outcome of this confusion, rather than start the much talked about training and support campaign the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator opens up a consultation period with a blitz!
This to me defies logic and just furthers the separation between enforcement agencies and truck operators.
Not real smart, Sal.
