Frank, truck driver

Jan 10, 2014

frankTo me Safe Rates are laws that have been some 30 years overdue and must be given a chance to take effect. Safe Rates is the first real and positive legislation that hits directly on the key issues and problems in our industry.

Safe Rates provides protection for me and my fellow drivers from those players in the industry that are prepared to cut my rates and conditions to a point where it compromises my safety and that of other road users for the sake of their profits.

Safe Rates means being able to afford to keep up with scheduled maintenance and not pushing driving hours to the limits and beyond just to keep me surviving in the industry.
