Main Roads data from 2019 shows four in five accidents involving trucks and cars are the fault of the car driver.
Despite this, accident and serious injury data shows that Australians are unaware of how to safely share the road with trucks. With truck movements growing, there is a critical need to educate current and future road users on how to share the road safely with trucks.
In an Australian first, Transafe WA has launched iNSTRUCTA!, a truck and customised semi-trailer which expands into a cutting-edge education space to teach schools, and the community, about road safety, truck drivers and what they do. Using augmented and virtual reality the programs will provide experiences in overtaking, road courtesy and understanding truck blind spots.
