NHVR focus on fatigue

The NHVR has started consultation on a user-friendly exemption for driving a fatigue-related heavy vehicle for personal use.

NHVR chief executive Sal Petroccitto said the exemption would allow operators some personal use of a heavy vehicle, outside their regulated driving hours.

Operators would be able to use a heavy vehicle for up to one hour at the end of the day or on a day off, Mr Petroccitto said.
