NHVR targets truck drivers in work diary blitz

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) recently kicked off a campaign urging truckies to carry their work diaries.

The regulator urged drivers passing through the Marulan Heavy Vehicle Safety Station (HVSS) in New South Wales to ensure they have their National Written Work Diary (WWD) after 120 drivers were penalised for not carrying their work diary.

NHVR Director of Operations Central Region Brett Patterson said they will take additional measures to ensure drivers comply with the law.

“The current penalty notice for not keeping a work diary is $711.
