Heavy vehicle enforcement

Heavy vehicles are involved in about 15 per cent of fatal road crashes that occur annually in South Australia (SA). During 2004 in SA a survey revealed that 30 per cent of the heavy transport drivers contacted exceeded 85 hours per week driving. Regulatory controls generally restrict this to a total of 72 hours per week. In May 2006 South Australia Police released its Road Safety Strategy 2006-2010. This strategy incorporated the national and state reduction targets for fatal and serious injury crashes and articulated the police roles and actions with a particular focus on detection, deterrence and education.
