It's Live in Queensland

South Bank Parklands

As you walk around the South Bank Truck Festival we’ve placed some decals on the footpaths with some useful tips about giving Australia’s truck drivers the space they need to keep us safe. See if you can learn them all.

Heavy vehicle drivers are proud of their safe driving records, but we know some people might feel a little intimidated by sharing the road with them.

Trucks are difficult to manoeuvre, have large blind spots and constantly have to navigate unpredictable traffic. Yet four out of five fatal accidents involving heavy vehicles are not the heavy vehicle driver’s fault. 


KEEP OUT OF TRUCK BLIND SPOTS

Trucks have four blind spots. Stay safe by keeping out of them.

DON’T OVERTAKE A TURNING TRUCK

Leave them plenty of space to keep you safe.

OVERTAKE TRUCKS SAFELY

Allow plenty of time and don’t pull back in until you can see both the truck’s headlights in your rear-view mirror.
