Heavy vehicle speeding is a serious problem on our roads. Reducing heavy vehicle speeding will make Queensland roads safer for all road users. National Compliance and Enforcement reforms to deal with heavy vehicle speeding, mass dimension and load restraint and fatigue management have been implemented through legislation in Queensland.
The reforms apply to all vehicles (including buses) with a gross vehicle mass of more than 4.5 tonnes.
In Queensland the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995, chapter 5D sets out the obligations for persons whose business activities influence the conduct of drivers of heavy vehicles.These laws focus on Chain of Responsibility (CoR) provisions to ensure everyone in the supply chain – not just the driver or operator – shares responsibility for road safety.
