* ACT - Trucks targeted in heavy vehicle safety checks across the country
Australia's heavy vehicle fleet is undergoing its first national health check... Up to 9,000 trucks around the country are about to get a health check... The random inspections will take place on heavy vehicles in the next two months to give an overall picture of the national fleet's roadworthiness... National Heavy Vehicle Regulator chief executive Sal Petroccitto said it was the first time there had been a nationally-consistent approach, despite there being a large array of truck types and purposes... Mr Petroccitto said the inspections were estimated to take no longer than 45 minutes, and would target about 250 vehicles in the Northern Territory...
