Following an increase in heavy vehicle accidents and fatalities in NSW, Roads and Maritime Services has introduced new ways to tackle the issue of speeding heavy vehicles. The reforms aim to make NSW roads safer for everyone by improving the behaviour of drivers and encouraging operators to take more responsibility for realistic schedules and vehicle speeds.
Slowing down saves lives and your life
Catching up with speeding heavy vehicles...
- Increased penalties for damaged, obscured or tampered number plates.
- Bi-directional speed cameras - vehicles can now be photographed from the front and back.
- Heavy Vehicle Rating System - all road offences will be centralised so that both repeat driver and operator offenders can be identified.
