Bus operators in Victoria are invited to attend information sessions outlining new heavy vehicle speed compliance laws.

The new laws – which will soon be introduced in Victoria – aim to reduce fatalities and injuries involving speeding heavy vehicles and will affect all off-road parties who can influence speeding, such as employers, contractors, operators, schedulers, consignors, receivers and loading managers.

The free information sessions are being run by VicRoads to help operators understand their responsibilities and how to meet their obligations under the new laws.

The sessions will provide an overview of the speeding heavy vehicle reform, and an opportunity to ask questions.
