The travelling road safety initiative, the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) Safety Truck has just been named Best Trade Show at the Koroit Truck Show.
This award is granted to the trade exhibition with the best overall presentation, easiest access to information about their trade and best interaction with the public attending.
Volvo ATA Safety Truck advocate Glen Schmidtke accepted the award.
“Trucks behave differently when accelerating, braking, climbing hills, switching lanes or turning.
“The more the community understands how trucks behave, the better prepared drivers will be to share the road safely.
“The intent of the Volvo ATA Safety Truck messaging is to educate about safety on the road – this knowledge is potentially lifesaving.”
While Koroit Truck Show Secretary, Julie Houlihan, said the road safety truck was a welcome sight at the show.
“The Koroit Truck Show Committee is most appreciative the Volvo ATA Safety Truck was at our event, as it not only provides those truck drivers present to review their driving and safety standards, it also allows the public to see what dangers and safety concerns truck drivers encounter on the roads,”
“Hopefully they can adjust their driving to allow for trucks.”
