The best way to make the road transport of goods safer is to ask drivers to take a driving test each year. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Transportation of goods and services via road is the safest and cheapest way of the supply chain. However, there are many people who think drivers should go for their driving test every year to keep the goods on the safe side. I totally disagree with the statement, and I will explain my view in the following paragraph.
Firstly, as we all know, goods transported by road are the cheapest source of transportation in the supply chain compared to other means of communication. For example, a free trade agreement between USMCA (United States, Mexico and Canada) in which these countries don’t have to pay taxes on the borders as per their policy. Moreover, Truck drivers also don’t have to worry about their driving abstract that they had to renew every year.
Furthermore, if truckers had to go for the driving test every year and had to renew their driving license by giving a driving test, it would be a really challenging situation for them to work in this profession. As we already have a shortage of truckers across the world and if we will impose any kind of new amendments, like going for the road test every year, that will create chaos in the supply chain industry. Although, if the government wants to make the goods safer and more secure, they should regularly check the logbooks of the driver and they should also install some cameras or sensors on the trucks which will keep the goods safer.
To summarise, the government should not make any such changes that will impact the whole industry.
