Help Road Safety Authority gather important information

26 April 2016

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has launched two surveys to seek insights and views on the topics of: a) Professional Driver Hours and b) Alternative Sanctions.

Views are invited before the closing date of May 23, 2016.

  1. Professional Driver Hours – Whether maximum driving times should be introduced for professional drivers not subject to the EU rules on tachograph use and driving times and what they should be with a view to reducing collision risks (Action 122 of the Government’s Road Safety Strategy 2013-2020).

Note that SPSV drivers are not currently subject to EU driving time legislation.

  1. The feasibility of alternative sanction options to deal with non-compliance by road haulage and road passenger operators and drivers with the EU driving time regulations and roadworthiness related legislation (Action 93 of the Government’s Road Safety Strategy 2013-2020).

This is your opportunity to contribute to these reviews and the RSA would value any opinions you may have.

Each survey should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete and responses will be entirely anonymous.

You can also find links to the surveys and further information regarding the reviews by visiting the page on the RSA website.

Please note: both surveys close on Monday 23rd May 2016.
