We should see it in about an hour
It's about the only sensible thing about QLD
Anyone else in the Ferry or Public Transport sector here in Oz?
I don't pay for news..........it only encourages them.
I don't either... didn't realise that was the case. Maybe this one?
I have seen what seems to me a sudden increase in vehicle numberplates that are 'National Heavy Vehicle'.
How does that work?
How can there be a rego system that covers national vehicles, but each state has its own rego system.
I have seen them in the past, but few and far between, but in recent months LOTS, included coaches and small light weight trucks, like 3tonne capacity light weight
I think its like the old interstate rego for heavy vehicles. Still administered by the states but there is a federal oversite, similar to the NAtional drivers licence scheme. I'm sure @ferals5 will be along soon with some facts rather than me making shit up
‘Making shit up’ that sounds right up my alley
@Hay Ewe dennis pretty much summed it up. the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is supposed to be making national rules... but it’s slow as each state still wants it’s own exemptions etc The 2nd letter in the plate usually indicates the home state.
Oh and the NHVR is based in Qld... no wonder it’s always an hour behind what we’re doing
I enquired about it and wether I’d need to get a new plate, VicRoads told me unless I was registering a new truck or transferring reg then the old plate can remain. Grey area with my truck as there’s bits of the NHVR I have to comply with (some weighbridges are “over 4.5t”) and some I don’t (log book and compulsory rest stops). Thank Buddha for federation back in 1901, it cleared up so many anomalies and made regulations plain and simple and across the board. In other news, a pig just flew past my window.
No rego checks for cars in Queeeeensland...because the laws of physics magically change when one crosses the border...
Other states dont do random roadworthy checks either. The responibility is on you to ensure your car is roadworthy. Dont see a problem here myself.
Was never a difficulty getting a sight unseen pinkslip when i lived south of the border. Shonky system anyway.

The laws of bureaucracy change... and their interpretation and enforcement change with each individual officer too...
Don’t have to change personalised plates either. If you lose a plate or want remakes err nah you get NHVR plates. As you noticed there are bits you don’t need to follow being under 12T .
There are some good bits around Chain of Responsibility/load restraint/ mass and dimensions. At least we’re all getting on the same page and not just lumping it all on drivers.
Time for Dubbo to shape up.
Thinking of moving Dave??
Sounds like someone with my finely tuned physique wouldn't fit in around there. (Wellington is officially the most obese town in Australia.)
Well they are usually targeted around here - too low, too loud etc. And trucking firms after a crash...
If they get caught doing that .. probably loose their ability to do spinkslips again. As well as anything else.
It's both fat and chock full of amphetamines?
So, good place to go shopping then?
Sounds like you can get anything you want in that town.
Perhaps you'd like to discuss rail gauges?
