Your View: Truck inspections

Regarding truck inspections — firstly, farm vehicles may be exempt from yearly inspections but are not under other legislation.

This includes the Road Traffic Act (vehicle accidents), Workers Health And Safety (plant and equipment) and Chain of Responsibility legislation owner responsibilities (federal).

Secondly, if you do not maintain your vehicles, including motorbikes, cars and trucks/trailers, you could face prosecution.

Thirdly, never believe a campaigning politician. They all get it wrong.
