Public support for driver education is strong

You have heard that NatRoad did some national research earlier this year to look at attitudes towards our industry.

We have been using the results to talk to policy-makers and governments about road transport’s importance to the economy and the relatively high regard truckies are held in by the community.

We’ll share some of the more interesting take-outs from time to time in our newsletter.

While our industry receives more than its share of unwarranted criticism, you will be pleased to hear that 81% Australians say truck drivers are considerate and drive well around other road users.

While 96% of motorists feel they drive well around trucks, only 48% feel the same way about the conduct of other drivers.

Your own experience on the road may not reflect the fact that 89% say they know that trucks may not be able to see their car, and 85% say they know to make sure there is room for a truck to stop safely before changing into its lane.

What is heartening is that 92% of Australians feel that truck awareness should be a mandatory part of driver education and licence testing.
