Stability control braking news: ATA

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) is urging truck operators to get up to speed with new braking and electronic stability control (ESC) requirements that are set to be implemented soon. 

This will be a focus topic at the annual Technology & Maintenance Conference (TMC), put on by the ATA and PACCAR & Dealer Network, held at Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) in Melbourne’s Docklands on 15-17 October.

The event, for which registration is now open, is touted as the trucking industry’s premier national gathering of business owners, professionals, mechanics, technicians, apprentices, fleet managers and technical fleet professionals.

According to the ATA, the Australian Government has decided to require many new trucks and trailers to have stability control.

It's predicted this measure alone could save 126 lives and prevent more than 1,100 serious injuries each year.

The 2018 TMC will have three comprehensive sessions on stability control, which will take attendees through the facts on the new braking requirements, how to retrofit stability control and the necessary connectors and onboard diagnostics and fault-finding.

It will also feature sessions on chain of responsibility, visibility marking with 3M tape and hands-on workshops in the live workshop zone.
