Our goal is to simplify and streamline the law as much as possible. We want a law that is outcome-focused, technology-neutral, easy to comply with and ensures heavy vehicles operate safely on our roads.

We want to hear from everyone affected by the law. Submit your ideas, see what others are saying and vote on ideas.
