RTA Weighbridges

September 5, 2005

Members are advised that they are now required to pull into RTA Heavy Vehicle Checking Stations, unless under lights and siren. Whilst the Department did put out an In Order notifying members that they have to pull into the checking stations, it did not reveal the fines that members may be personally liable for, ranging from $900 up to $5000.The Union has made representations to the Department and will also write to the RTA seeking an exemption. However the current legislation does not exempt the NSW Fire Brigade’s so all members are advised that they must pull into the checking stations until further notice.
