Truck driving hours, and enforcement

Postby will » Wed Nov 16, 2005 12:45 pm

Can someone give me a brief idea of the restrictions on driving hours in Aus?
Are they standard throughout the country?
And od the non police agencies that enforce truck weights such as RTA and some local councils also have the power to enforce driving hours.

Reason I ask is a local truckie here claims aussie truck drivers can drive numerous hours interstate, because once they get into another state another set of rules applies, and also that only police can check driving hours. The scalies can only weigh trucks.

In Victoria Vic Road Enforcement Officers can do anything to a truck in relation to traffic enforecemnt that the Police can do. Driving Hours are outlined in the Road Rules which is a national standard (for the most part) and are standard (as far as I am aware)across the nation, but then again I only worry about Victorian legislation.


Basically your local truckie is full of ****.
