Rod Hannifey is our resident Host of ‘Truck That Australia’ which is released monthly on Whiteline and now he also brings you the ‘Truckies Top Ten Tips #01’ for cars and trucks to share the roads safely together. This advice is presented in good faith not to tell people what to do but provide constructive friendly advice on how we can all get along better for a safer outcome.
In this first short video Rod explains the first of the Top Ten tips which is about not cutting in front of trucks. When you think of the sheer size of some of these vehicles B’Doubles weighing in at up to 68 tonnes, it is absolute madness to expect that they can stop on a dime as the expression goes. It is imperative that trucks are given as much room as possible to ensure safety on the roads for all. Room to stop, room to turn, room to flow with traffic and room to get going. this would have to be the number one key factor with sharing the roads between us, don’t cut in front of a heavy vehicle.
