Driving heavy vehicles safely

Chain of responsibility

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) website has information about chain of responsibility for heavy vehicles.


Safe-T-Cam is a network of cameras that monitor the movement of vehicles on South Australian roads.

The cameras are on major arterial roads where they record, verify and store information about heavy vehicles, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The cameras help to detect drivers who:

  • drive a vehicle that is unregistered and uninsured
  • fail to take required rest breaks specified by heavy vehicle driving hours (fatigue) regulations
  • travel between any two or more Safe-T-Cam sites in less than the allowable time under speed and fatigue laws
  • attempt to avoid detection at camera sites.

Fatigue related offences detected by Safe-T-Cam cameras in South Australia are processed by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator.

Penalties will also apply for offences originating in New South Wales and detected in South Australia.
