It is Road Safety Week in Queensland and the Department of Transport and Main Roads organised various workshops across the state. Special attendees at the Bundaberg workshop were Ken Wilson (the man behind the development of the Truck Friendly road safety program) and our own Tom Smith.
The ACC has partnered with Ken to enhance and promote Truck Friendly within our Club. Ken took the opportunity to hand over to Tom our allocation of his Truck Friendly stickers which have been imprinted with the ACC logo.
The Club is planning to launch the program during the Branch Representatives Briefing on day 1 of the National Muster. For further information go to www.truckfriendly.com.au and details of the launch are here.

The Australian National University, ANU College of Law is conducting research to identify whether the Australian consumer law and the Australian vehicle standards are ineffective in ensuring that only caravans that are fit for purpose are used on Australian roads.
The project is reviewing relevant law applicable to the design and sale of caravans including the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (Cth), the Road Vehicle Standards Rules 2019 (Cth) and Vehicle Standards Bulletin VSB1 Building Small Trailers National Code of Practice. Other relevant law will be the Australian Consumer Law (or ACL). The ACL is set out in Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).
