How can you be TRUCK FRIENDLY?

The Truck Friendly road safety program.

How it all started.

As a caravanner myself, I love the lifestyle, however, I have seen many incidents involving caravans, RVs and trucks on our highways and urban streets that have put lives at risk. Many have been caused by drivers just not understanding how to work with other road users.

In up to 83% of truck verses car accidents, the driver of the car was totally responsible.  (Source :- NTARC – 2017 Major Accident Investigation Report)

Many people today follow the dream of travelling around Australia or going on holidays towing a caravan or driving an RV. Indeed, interest in caravan and RVs  has increased dramatically in recent years. 

This can sometimes mean those behind the wheel have little or no experience in towing a large caravan on our highways. Whilst drivers may believe that they are doing the right thing on the road, most have never experienced being inside the cab of a large semi-trailer and seen what impact inexperienced and inappropriate driving can have on our truck drivers and their lives in general.

The Truck Friendly program is designed to help all drivers understand how they can be friendly to the huge number of truck drivers on our highways so that we all get home safely.

I hope you find this website to be informative and I invite you to join me in becoming a 'Truck Friendly' advocate. 

Stay safe.
