  • 08/15 – Preparing and Securing your Future

    0815_WATM COVER_204x288

    WATM | August 2015 By Ian King (WARTA). Now the Compliance and Enforcement Legislation, under the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012, is in full swing, to date the response has been as expected. We have those who were prepared; those who thought, let’s wait and see; and, those who never gave it a second thought.

  • 08/15 – First WA C&E Code of Practice

    WATM | August 2015 By Mike Wood (LATUS).

I feel this coverage is potentially being portrayed to the public in a somewhat biased view. Here are the facts. There are two sections of the link MRWA are seeking p...

  • 07/15 – C&E and the small operators

    WATM | July 2015 By Mike Wood (LATUS). C&E IS ABOUT ensuring you understand road law, have processes in place to ensure you follow it and systems in place to be able to record what you have done. All of these are related to breaches that could occur on a public road. The difficulty is that it’s all about the interface and transaction between the user of transport and the provider of transport. On the East Coast and now growing in WA, ‘Chain of Respons...
