How do you keep your train from running out of fuel?
It’s a question you’d expect from a driver on a freight train.
But for the freight handlers who work on freight trains, this question is an entirely different matter.
For these truck drivers, there is a serious risk that they’ll run out of gas.
That’s because the rail industry is not regulated by the Government.
Instead, it’s a tightly-controlled industry.
And so the roadrunners’ experience is not an isolated one.
It’s a familiar story for the rest of the country.
Since 2000, freight train drivers have been required to report their fuel levels on a daily basis, with a daily fuel consumption report to be sent to the Department of Transport.
The data is supposed to be available to the Government, which can inspect the data and decide whether it’s sufficient.
But a loophole has allowed the Government to keep the fuel consumption data confidential.
The data has been kept secret since 2000.
When I spoke to two of the roadrunner’s drivers, both said that it was an easy problem to deal with.
The drivers said that they knew about the fuel information, but they did not have to report it.
It was all taken care of for them.
They could report the data to the DPT, but there was nothing they could do.
And it was only after the fuel level report came out, in the form of a report, that the driver was required to contact the Dpt.
The problem was that the DFT did not know about the confidential information, said one of the drivers.
The DPT is an organisation that’s supposed to represent the interests of the public, but is also an industry organisation.
So, in essence, the DftP is doing the public a disservice.
It can’t be that they are not aware of the fuel data.
They’re not aware that it’s confidential.
They can’t do anything about it.
The only way they can stop it is by changing their regulation.
And in this instance, that’s what the Minister for Transport, Brendan Howlin, has done.
It is very difficult to understand how a company like this can have a loophole like this, said John O’Connor, the head of the Government’s Fuel Quality Agency.
He said that there is no other way to ensure that the fuel levels are maintained, which means that a company can have these kinds of loopholes.
He also said that the loophole in the Government fuel standards is not just a technicality.
It’s indicative of a wider problem in the industry.
It shows that there are a lot of loopholes in the system, he said.
It means that if there are other companies out there that are making a profit off of this information, there’s no accountability, he added.
It also means that the Government can’t enforce fuel standards and it can’t stop the companies that are selling fuel, he concluded.
In other words, it creates an incentive for the industry to keep things quiet, and it’s just a matter of time before there’s a scandal like this.
There is also a significant risk that this loophole could be exploited.
John O’Neill, a transport specialist, said that this was a problem that has existed for years.
There are no rules on the Government-funded fuel standards in Ireland, so if these loopholes are exploited, it could be very costly.
So if you’re a freight company and you have a diesel train, there are some very strict rules on how you are to keep fuel levels, and there’s some very detailed regulations on how to report the fuel, but if somebody has these loopholes that could be a very serious problem, he argued.
And that’s why it’s so important that this information is published.
The Government said that if it had to change the law to enforce the rules, it would.
The Minister for Transportation, Brendan O’Brien, said he wanted to change all fuel standards.
However, he was quick to point out that the only way that they could change the Government rules was by changing the law.
He told the DFP that the Fuel Quality Regulations are “an important and effective mechanism” to ensure the safety of the travelling public.
He added that they “are the only means of ensuring that fuel levels and fuel consumption reporting are consistent and reliable”.
But, as the Minister noted, there has been no change to the law, and this is a problem.
