I feel sorry for anyone who has invested in new gear and now doesn't have work for it.

If we want to improve safety and simplify things ..... Make road transport a federal responsibility ie get rid of Vicroads RMS and upteen other state bodies. Keep the front line staff but they report to the Federal department of transport and have one set of rules that applies all across Australia.

Atkipete, mate thats toooo sensible. They would'nt be able to build their own little castles if they had to do it with one controlling body. Either that or it would get bogged down in redtape. Cheers Tim :unsure:

One thing I don't get - if all these owner drivers are convinced they and their trucks are going to stand idle who do they think is going to tow all the trailers and move the 1,000;s tons freight.
As I write I got it - they want to keep the right to get the work by undercutting everyone else, silly me.

Undercutting is practiced widely but I can see a bizarre situation developing now. RSRT rates are in for two months, forwarders and customers carry on but eventually start paying the new rates, then Turnbull abolishes the RSRT and all of a sudden rates drop back to where they were ( or even lower ). What has been achieved. ?

.....I think atkipete is on the right track...........
..
. ....Unfortunately
....we do have too many regulative bodies.....but we are stuck with them.
Getting rid of this one completely is a knee jerk reaction......
( it should be amended )...............,as, if abolished, the door may be
opened to some changes that could be a backward step.
I don't think a lot of people have put too much thought into the future.
