Understanding road user attitudes and behaviours to improve heavy truck safety: findings from recent NSW attitudinal research
Submission Date: 2019
Crashes involving heavy trucks are often more serious because of their size and weight, regardless of who is at fault. An increase in fatal heavy truck crashes in 2017 as well as construction projects in Sydney led to the need for research to help inform future strategy, policy and communications in this space. Mixed-method attitude and behaviour research was conducted among heavy truck drivers, fleet managers, enforcement personnel and other road users. The findings are discussed.
