TRUCK CRASH PROTECTION
NEW technology aimed at reducing heavy vehicle rollovers and crashes will be unveiled today, with the lowcost devices able to be fitted to trucks within a few hours.
The Auto-Monitor includes a world-first warning system that predicts rollover danger.
It was developed for the US military and warns drivers using a loud alarm and traffic light warning system.
“This technology will change lives and save lives and I look forward to seeing it implemented by operators across Australia,” federal transport and infrastructure minister Darren Chester said.
“We want people to be travelling in the safest vehicle possible on the roads.”
