The Truck Wise project has been designed to complement existing road safety programs and truck awareness initiatives. The following links provide useful resources about other programs, truck interactions and driver awareness.
Road to Zero
In line with the current Victorian Road Safety Strategy, the aim of the Transport Accident Commission and its road safety partners is to achieve the vision of no road deaths and serious injuries – a future where every journey is a safe one.
The my learners outlines the various stages a young driver will encounter as they progress through the Victorian Graduated Licensing system.
The roads and freeways are a truck driver’s main workplace, so to make their workplace safer and more enjoyable this site outlines a few things we can all do to share the road.
NHVR – We need space campaign
Heavy vehicle drivers are proud of their safe driving records, but at the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, we know some people might feel a little intimidated by sharing the road with them. The link promotes truck safety awareness through videos, posters and factsheets. It’s aimed at giving Australia’s truck drivers the space they need to keep drivers safe.
DriveSmart is aimed at drivers become a better, safer driver as they gain experience on the road and prepare to get their licence. This interactive link takes you through a range of driving scenarios and quizzes, where the driver needs to make safe driving judgments. It is also aimed at improving hazard perception, scanning and concentration skills.
Delivered by VicRoads, Road Smart is a new road safety education and training program for Year 10 or equivalent students. The program is part of the Victorian Government’s Young Driver Safety Package and aims to build the knowledge, skills and behaviours for safe driving among young people.
F2D Fit to Drive
The Fit to Drive program website has information on road safety programs and resources. The program’s objective is to engage with young people to deliver road safety messages that will empower and support young road users (aged 16-25) to achieve zero deaths on Victorian roads.
Linfox truck safety series
In a four-part truck safety series launched by the TAC, Linfox truck drivers provide insight into their working life on our roads. They talk candidly about road safety, and share their thoughts on
everything from fatigue and speed through to interacting with other road users and coping with stress.
