Truck mak­ers call for cash

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

The body that rep­re­sents truck mak­ers in Aus­tralia has called for gov­ern­ment as­sis­tance to help op­er­a­tors up­date to new ve­hi­cles. Truck In­dus­try Coun­cil chief tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer Si­mon Humphries said the av­er­age age of a truck in Aus­tralia was 14 years com­pared to eight in many other coun­tries and wanted in­cen­tives to aid the pur­chase of new trucks. ‘‘We aim for zero fa­tal­i­ties and crashes; this means safer trucks,’’ he said.
