THE SAFETY TRUCK EXPERIENCE

 

Transafe WA hosted the ATA’s Safety Truck through WA’s Wheatbelt, Metropolitan and South-West regions during August and September 2016. The truck visited schools, regional agricultural shows and other events, educating people on sharing the road safely with heavy vehicles.

With the Australian freight task predicted to triple by 2050 and increase 26% over the next decade to 2026, these messages are more important than ever.

In recognition of the project success, the WA Road Safety Commission is now working with Transafe WA to deliver the state its very own Safety Truck. Rippa! Watch this space!

MID-WEST INDUSTRY ROAD SAFETY ALLIANCE – TAME THE BEAST

In 2013 MWIRSA launched a road safety campaign addressing the safe overtaking of road trains on regional WA roads. The campaign explains safe overtaking of road trains from two sides; the truck drivers perspective and from that of a back seat driver in the passing vehicle. The resulting TV Commercials are short but highly effective.
