Throughout May, their insights and advice will be showcased on the Teletrac Navman contest website. At the end of the month, the driver with the best tip will receive a $100 Visa prepaid gift card. .
Everyone on the road wants to get home safely. This is especially true for heavy vehicle operators, who are unfortunately often involved in road accidents; many of these involving and potentially caused by their smaller counterparts. Whether it’s sitting in blind spots or rapid changing speeds on the highway, many drivers don’t realise these habits put a lot of stress on truck drivers who can’t easily brake or swerve out of harm’s way. Despite best efforts, the industry saw an increase in deaths by 86 per cent in 2017. With 17 more fatalities on NSW roads in March alone, it’s important to address the on-going issue that is road safety and sharing the road with a heavy-vehicle.
“Our country runs on heavy vehicle transport. We have more than 4,000 trucks travelling along the Hume Highway just between Sydney and Melbourne daily. That’s big numbers and that’s why it’s so important to keep the safety and wellbeing of drivers top of mind. With first-hand accounts from those behind the wheel, we can gain insights that will make our roads safer for everyone” says, Andrew Rossington, Vice President of Transport at Teletrac Navman.

Teletrac Navman is excited to see what the experts have to offer when it comes to heavy vehicle safety. Representatives from Teletrac Navman are available for comment all throughout Road Safety week.
