ATA unveils first animated safety video

The first in a series of animated safety videos has been posted online as part of a campaign by the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) to show motorists how to share the road safely with heavy vehicles.

The first video highlights the dangers of cutting in to the large space left between a truck and the vehicle in front, and explains trucks need this extra space to stop safely if required. The video series features the animated Safety Truck character from the ATA’s upgraded road safety exhibition, the Safety Truck, and will illustrate some of the most essential points from the new 'Truckies Top Tips'.

The full video series will be available online, with a new video released each week. The videos will also be on display in the Safety Truck. Coming up next week: don’t overtake turning trucks.
