Keep it 10 below

April 2011

Hey check out our new resource for truckies which was launched this month by the Waikato Regional Education Group. This is the first component in a series of three campaigns as part of our Heavy Vehicle Strategy. ‘Keep it 10 below’ is a reminder for truck drivers to travel 10 km under the speed advertised at advisory corners. Many truck crashes on bends could have been avoided by heeding this simple advice. This campaign seeks to encourage truck drivers to go 10 km/h under any recommended speed through corners and reduce the risk of being involved in a roll over or loss of control crash.
