New trucking laws intend to alert truckers

The federal government announces that the legislation will be introduced in Parliament to make sure that truck drivers should not drive for too long, drive when they are not tired and to make them stay out of taking drugs while driving.

Trucking laws for drivers

Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese says "the safe rates legislation will ensure safety on all roads and best practice in the trucking industry."

A Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal from Fair Work Australia will be formed to find out whether the truck drivers are being pressured to drive unsafely.

When a truck driver feels that pressure is being placed on for unsafe practices, the truck driver can contact the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal and the tribunal will make a decision for it.

He also added by saying that “there isn't going to be change in the industry overnight, but i hope this new rule will benefit truckers and for all people who use them”.
