Eyes on the laws

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

The bid to na­tion­alise the most im­por­tant trans­port laws is mov­ing along.

The Na­tional Trans­port Coun­cil and Heavy Ve­hi­cle Reg­u­la­tor Project Of­fice plan to re­lease a doc­u­ment in Fe­bru­ary called a reg­u­la­tory im­pact state­ment and ex­po­sure draft, which looks at how the new rules will work and which ones will need to be changed.

The laws due to be con­sol­i­dated na­tion­ally in­clude heavy ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion; ve­hi­cle stan­dards; heavy ve­hi­cle charges; over­size and over-mass ve­hi­cles; re­stricted-ac­cess ve­hi­cles com­pli­ance and en­force­ment; and heavy ve­hi­cle fa­tigue and speed­ing com­pli­ance.
