Herald Sun - Motoring - - Bikes -

THE Aus­tralian Trans­port Coun­cil has asked Trans­port Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Aus­tralia, the body charged with ad­min­is­ter­ing the In­tel­li­gent Ac­cess Pro­gram, to de­velop an elec­tronic fa­tigue and speed man­age­ment sys­tem to en­able reg­u­la­tors to mon­i­tor driv­ers and their com­pli­ance with fa­tigue-man­age­ment laws. TCA head Chris Koni­d­it­si­o­tis says the move shows gov­ern­ments are adopt­ing 21st-cen­tury think­ing in us­ing mod­ern tech­nol­ogy to tackle the age-old prob­lem of driver fa­tigue and road safety. The TCA plans to con­sult the telem­at­ics in­dus­try, trans­port op­er­a­tors, the lo­gis­tics sec­tor and gov­ern­ment to en­sure the re­sult is the best pos­si­ble out­come for all con­cerned.
