Time counting and residual fatigue risk submission

24 February 2014

The NTC needs to produce evidence of deficiencies in the current Standard Driving Hours and should not proceed with its suggested review until these are available, the ATA has said in this submission.

The submission responds to the NTC’s concerns that drivers continually working the maximum legal hours over a repeating 28 day work cycle would become fatigued despite the Standard Driving Hours restrictions.
