        Friend of mine was hit by a dirt bike during a pursuit tonight. Air lifted to hospital with head, neck, pelvic and horrific leg injuries. Just not a job to make practically safe. I had an oh&s guy ride along with me for a couple of nights and it was hilarious. Wanted us to wear hi vis during a dangerous stop, didn’t think we should enter a house where a woman was being beaten by a drunk fuckwit. He did make a good point about us rushing, lights and sirens to a call where a guy said he wanted to shoot police

          yeah, nah. Not in our lifetimes.

            I was passed by an autonomous truck on the highway in the US back in 2019. One of the US companies, I think Amazon, have been using them depot to depot since 2016

                Its because the individual had a direct duty of care for the driver and violated that.

                There is further precedent for the board or directors of the company to also be charged: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-01-...sland/13070730

                  if thats the case, then I agree.

                    My mistake, I was thinking more of an organisation being sued, rather than criminal charges.

                    Depending on the angle, it does open the door for multiple lawsuits.

                      Yeah, its quite a different shift from previous practices of suing or laying charges at the organisation. Now they are going after individuals within the org, and even company directors.

                          I have worked on those haultrucks, they work extremely well in an environment where there is nothing for them to bump into.
                          Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

                            Chain Of Responsibility under Heavy Vehicle National Law, this one was interesting in Springvale. The driver picked up a container with timber and rolled over, the guys who packed and shipped the container got charged because they didn't secure the load inside the container.

                            We have been slow getting to grips with it and have consultants in now advising us on what we need to do to be compliant. We're a tier 2 civil/elec contractor and there is a lot to it. Like the new Vic work manslaughter laws it's not just Directors, but anyone resposible all the way along are liable.
