The discussion about truck safety needs to start with the facts. Adam Gibson from NTI and Sarah Jones from Toll Group have those facts.
Adam will present the National Truck Accident Research Centre’s 2017 truck crash findings. Since 2003, NTARC’s research has provided a national view of the number and causes of truck crashes.
Its 2017 report will provide important new evidence on fatigue crashes for the industry and governments to consider, while still enabling comparisons with NTARC’s past information.
Sarah will discuss Toll’s research into its own on-road and driver fatalities, and the additional insights that it provides. Some of the findings in the research are disturbing – but they must be discussed if we are to achieve our goal of zero fatal and serious injury crashes.
