Be truck aware - blind spots and cyclists

Are you a cyclist? Truck drivers are looking out for you, so you should look out for them - it's a shared responsibility.


 

Be truck aware - pedestrian safety

With increased construction work across Greater Metropolitan Sydney, there will be more trucks on our roads and changed traffic conditions.


 

How to avoid having an overheight vehicle incident

Most heavy vehicles in NSW have a height limit of 4.3m, so any vehicle that exceeds this height is considered overheight.


 

Chain of Responsibility - The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR)

On 1 October 2018, the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) was amended to provide that every party in the heavy vehicle transport supply chain has a duty to ensure the safety of their transport activities. In practical terms, this primary duty represents an obligation to eliminate or minimise potential harm or loss (risk) by doing all that is reasonably practicable to ensure safety.
