101. New Rules for Trailer Registration for UK Hauliers Heading to Europe
April 09, 2019


For any HGV drivers that travel to Europe to do haulage work, the fact that a new ruling on the registration of trailers has recently come into effect is extremely important. At the end of March 2019, the UK ratified the UN 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, which means that anyone planning to take a trailer abroad is required to register it with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) before doing so. The Trailer Registration Scheme The scheme is mandatory, so travel (towing a trailer) into any of the other countries that have also ratified the convention is now unlawful... (read more)

April 09, 2019


With the affects of sleep deprivation one of the leading causes of accidents for haulage drivers, the issue is understandably a high profile one. While mandatory rest breaks and highly visible roadside campaigns are going some way to reduce the worrying statistics of recent years, it remains an on-going issue in the industry. High Risk and High Profile Haulage drivers, perhaps more than others in almost any other profession, are constantly at risk from the dangerous effects of tiredness.

104. New Speed Cameras Catching Red Light Runners
April 09, 2019


Merseyside owner drivers need to be aware that a new speed camera is being trialled by police. This camera not only catches speeding vehicles but has been designed to catch red light jumpers too. Known as ‘speed on green’ cameras, they are part of a new innovation that aims to improve safety on the road and deter anyone behind the wheel from speeding up through traffic lights as they are changing. What the Cameras Do The principle aim of this technology is to catch drivers jumping lights. They are also, however, fine-tuned to catch anyone speeding through them, regardless of whether ...

108. The Industry Knock-on Effects of Rising Fuel Costs
April 09, 2019


Courier drivers face many problems, but the rising cost of fuel is a recurring issue causing knock-on effects year after year. Due to the ever-increasing prices, some delivery companies are forced to make drastic changes, resulting in drivers being out of jobs and slower advancements when it comes to technology and new vehicles.

If you are a race car fanatic, then you probably know a lot about V8 supercars and the races they participate in.

April 05, 2019


If you have a ute, chances are you have things that you like to store in it. However, it can be very difficult to cram fishing gear, work stuff, camping supplies, and tools all in the back of a ute without something either getting lost, damaged, or stolen. A ute storage system can help with that, with many companies able to fit your ute with 4wd storage drawers. The drawers typically hold 150 kilograms each and can be fitted to work with the space your ute has easily. There are many 4wd drawer systems that can serve your needs as a working tradie and a camping lover, so let’s see wh... (read more)
