ARSC conference 2018

The Traffic Taskforce (Formally known as the Joint Traffic Taskforce) was formed in 2014 after a string of Heavy Vehicle incidents on the NSW road network. The Taskforce’s main role is to provide the NSW Police Force an ability to rapidly respond to high risk incidents/non compliance involving Heavy Vehicles and investigate these incidents against the requirements of Heavy Vehicle legislation. In the past four years the Taskforce has conducted numerous reactive and pro active interactions with Operators within industry, with very positive outcomes.
