Truck drivers on notice over safety concerns

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 30 November 2018

The country's largest road safety investigation has turned its attention to 20 trucking companies which could be forced out of business by Christmas. Twenty-five truck drivers have also been put on notice, and four have been suspended immediately by the Transport Agency because of their driving history and medical problems. The agency can't name the companies at risk of losing their operating licence until a month-long appeal period is up. The Road Transport Forum's chief executive is Ken Shirley. He talks to Susie Ferguson.
