The TSC have released guidelines to assist taxi drivers to manage fatigue.
Recognising and managing fatigue has been identified as one of the highest areas of failure in the Knowledge test, which is addressed in the driver behaviour module. Drinking coffee and taking stimulants is often the incorrect answer given when drivers are asked how to manage fatigue.
Driver fatigue is not only a risk to the health and safety of taxi drivers - it is also a risk to the safety of passengers and the wider public.
Strategies to manage fatigue are the responsibility of all industry participants.
