Colliding with a truck or heavy vehicle is a terrifying experience. Crashes involving trucks or heavy vehicles often result in more serious physical and psychological trauma for the victims involved.
According to the NSW Centre for Road Safety although heavy trucks represent only 2.2 % of registered vehicles in NSW, crashes involving heavy trucks account for 20% of all fatalities on NSW roads.
