Who deals with the 'proper' fatigue laws

"PROPER” fatigue does only affect heavy vehicle drivers, yes, said truckie and Big Rigs social media follower Glenn Piper.

Glenn was responding to a comment on Facebook arguing that all motorists on the roads experienced the same levels of fatigue and if caravanners were fatigued, why shouldn't they share a park with truckies?

"We can't just stop whenever or wherever we want, we are working, have time slots and deliveries to make,” he said.

"Our lives are ruled by a work diary, which you can't exceed or risk losing the whole week's wages.

"Tired in your caravan? There's thousands of caravan parks everywhere along every highway. Nobody on holiday in their right bloody mind would want to sleep in a parking bay on the side of the highway. Noisy, dangerous, muddy/dusty, no facilities.

"A 15-minute break, fine, but let's call it what it is. Caravanners sleeping in parking bays are only doing so because they are too cheap to go to a caravan park for the night.”
