Welcome to Truck Friendly – Caravan Road Safety Program
There are currently far too many accidents and incidents occur involving caravans, RVs and trucks on Australia’s highways and urban roads. Many of these could have been avoided through education on safe caravan towing practices, and a better understanding of how to work ‘with’ the heavy vehicle drivers.
At Truck Friendly, our mission is to provide well-researched and reliable easy to understand road safety education to help foster a friendlier and more cooperative working relationship between all road users on our highways and suburban roads.
You might also like to let other drivers know that you are an educated driver who wants to help other road users through joining our free caravan / RV sticker program.
The Truck Friendly program offers general caravan safety tips and advice for those new, and experienced to caravanning so that we all get home safely.
