Road Ahead safety exhibition gets a revamp
The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) is planning an overhaul for its Road Ahead safety exhibition.
A $1.3 million trailer, the Road Ahead display has been on the road for five years and hosted 80,000 visitors.
It was developed in order to educate children and adults about the road transport industry and road safety, with a particular focus on sharing the road with heavy trucks.
‘‘Sharing the road safely is everyone’s responsibility, but nowhere in their driver’s tests are L- and P-plate drivers taught to interact safely with a truck or oversized vehicle,’’ says ATA chief executive Stuart St Clair.
