NHVR's new safety initiative

THE National Heavy Vehicle Regulator's Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative will continue to support industry-led heavy vehicle safety projects throughout Australia, says the Deputy Prime Minister and Infrastructure and Transport Minister Michael McCormack.

The project will receive $3.9m in funding.

Social media users wished that money would go to other things, like rest stops.

Brent Paddy: Spend $4m on rest stops!

Trevor Gear: That's all good however the calibre of drivers is the issue here I think some of the new breed of drivers have no idea and don't care from what I have experienced about being a good and safe driver they park anywhere overtake when not safe and basically don't give a crap that's not the Australian way of the past of our truck and coach industry.
