ATA urges road safety via Facebook this long weekend

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has launched a new Facebook road safety campaign to encourage drivers to stay safe and avoid accidents during the long weekend.

According to ATA CEO, Ben Maguire, extra traffic will be expected on the roads as people head off for the break, reminding road users that truck drivers will still be hard at work.

“Everyone is keen to get on with their journey, but safety has to come first,” said Maguire. “We all have an obligation to be patient and share the road, so a little understanding from all drivers will go a long way.

“There will be plenty more vehicles on the road, so always use common sense and be cautious. If you don’t feel up to driving, if you’re tired or feeling unwell, take a break or let another driver takeover.

“Remember also that truckies will still be out there on the roads working, so taking it easy will make everyone safer and help them do their job,” he said.
