AG MACHINERY NIGHT TRAVEL EXEMPTIONS TOO SLOW:
Friday, 03 June 2016 10:48

AG MACHINERY NIGHT TRAVEL EXEMPTIONS TOO SLOW: Road movement laws for agricultural machinery are restrictive and out of touch with modern agricultural practices, said farmers in a recent survey. Primary Producers SA chairman Rob Kerin said that night travel was a big problem, with grape harvesters and windrowers being the only oversize machinery able to travel on public roads at night. PPSA had requested the night travel exemption be changed to include all agriculture machinery and combinations, which is vital during seeding and harvest time. The Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure have yet to sign off on any changes, and the lack of action has frustrated farmers, who are being slowed up during harvest, running the risk of involvement with police. The Department was unavailable for comment when approached.

LEGAL SERVICES A PRIORITY FOR WOMEN, REGIONAL & REMOTE: Women and children needing family law advice, and people in regional and remote areas will be given priority once changes to community legal services are implemented. While the Federal government has cut funding to the Community Legal Centre sector by 40%, the State Government led a review of Community Legal Centres, and created a new model that will increase online resources and centralise access to legal information. They also plan to provide outreach services to improve access to information, assistance and advice. There are presently eight Community Legal Centres in South Australia, including one in Mount Gambier.
