Trucks and heavy vehicles need to use rest areas for short and long breaks, and to check their loads are restrained properly. This is required for heavy vehicle drivers under fatigue management laws. Always be courteous and ensure you leave marked truck parking or long bays clear for those who need them such as vehicles that are towing, and other heavy vehicles. Plan your trip before you leave to avoid stopping in designated truck parking areas wherever possible.
