Heavy Vehicle Safety Strategy 2021-2025 is open for consultation
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) seeks industry opinion on the draft Heavy Vehicle Safety Strategy (HVSS) 2021-2025.
Half a decade of HVSS demonstrates NHVR’s strategic ambition to improve heavy vehicle safety results and help reduce the number of collisions, deaths, and serious injuries associated with heavy vehicles.
NHVR Safety Director Greg Phil states that the strategy developed in line with the Federal Draft National Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030 will be receiving feedback until April 30.
“The safety strategy is supported by an annual action plan that outlines the activities, responsibilities, and delivery timeframes that NHVR will carry out over the next five years,” says Phil.
“This informs NHVR’s strategic approach to partnerships, brings about positive changes in personal behavior and industry culture, and promotes the latest, safer heavy vehicles that reduce the potential and impact of collisions. It’s an opportunity to promote. “
According to the data released by Infrastructure and Transport Research and Economy Bureau (BITRE), the annual death toll on roads associated with heavy vehicles is on the decline, down 2.5% over the last decade.
“We have too many deaths on our roads and we hope that they will continue to decline over the next decade,” Fill says.
