NHVR teams up with TV talent for road safety

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) CEO, Sal Petroccitto, said Australian actor, Shane Jacobson, has agreed to front the ‘Tell a mate’ heavy vehicle social media safety campaign.

“I met Shane at a heavy vehicle event in Cairns and I was impressed with his passion for heavy vehicle safety,” said Petroccitto.

“I’m pleased someone with Shane’s profile has agreed to encourage heavy vehicle drivers to get out there and ‘Tell a mate’ about heavy vehicle safety,” he said.

Tell a mate is a social media campaign, delivered by the NHVR, to highlight that heavy vehicle safety is everyone’s business, whether you drive a truck, car or tow a caravan.

“If you’re a driver or operator who has been around heavy vehicles for any length of time you know how important safety is,” said Jacobson.

“Don’t keep your safety tips to yourself. Talk to other drivers, talk to your mates who drive light vehicles or talk to everyone in your supply chain.

“In my experience truck drivers love a yarn and love to tell a story, but rarely do I hear them talk about safety.

“Then next time you’re speaking to a mate, share your knowledge about heavy vehicle safety,” he said.
