Australian Road Safety Awards recognise work of ATA Safety Truck…
The traveling heavy vehicle road safety initiative – the Volvo ATA Safety Truck has been named as a finalist for the 2017 Australian Road Safety Awards.
The awards, an initiative of the Australian Road Safety Foundation, will be handed out at a ceremony in Melbourne next Wednesday and the ATA Safety Truck is a contender to take out the Community Program category.
After visiting 49 schools and events last year and directly engaging with over 30,000 visitors, Australian Trucking Association (ATA) Chair, Noelene Watson, says the Safety Truck is making a real difference for all road users.
“This nomination highlights our longstanding commitment to safety,”
“It’s been proven that trucks are more often than not the cause of the fatal multi-vehicle accidents that are involved in.
“So, the Safety Truck’s work in educating car drivers and future car drivers is absolutely vital.
“The more the community understands how trucks behave, the better prepared drivers will be to share the road safely.”
