CPV driver fatigue management

Mar 11, 2020 | News

We recently raised the issue of fatigue management of commercial passenger vehicle drivers following concerns raised with Mr Barton about drivers swapping between rideshare apps and taxi shifts to work beyond recommended hours.

The Minister has responded saying Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria has released a new code of practice on meeting safety duties which includes “practical guidance for industry participants for ensuring safety in commercial passenger vehicles”.

The “practical guidance” informs vehicle owners, booking services providers and drivers that they need to take steps to manage fatigue and not to drive when tired or fatigued.
