Enforcement approaches to speeding heavy vehicles

Printer-friendly version
08 July 2016

The ATA’s submission to the NTC discussion paper on enforcement approaches to speeding heavy vehicles argues that the NTC should not proceed with its proposal for a power to immediately ground heavy vehicles travelling 15 km/h or more over posted or default speed limits (for example, a vehicle travelling at 78km/hr in a 60km/hr zone).

Instead, the submission urges the NTC to adopt the ATA’s long standing position of supporting the grounding of heavy vehicles for speeding offences of 15 km/h or more over the open road 100 km/h limit when the detected speeding occurs on a flat road.
