Holden goes the extra mile
for 2017 Commodore owners
has welcomed the
practical road safety
measures in the
released this week.
ATA Chair Geoff
Crouch said the
continued funding its critical road safety
infrastructure programs in line with its election
“The Government was re-elected in 2016
with a commitment to continue funding the
Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity, Roads
to Recovery, Black Spot and Bridges Renewal
programs beyond 2019-20,” Mr Crouch said.
“These programs are highly cost effective
and deliver safety improvements such as truck
rest areas, roundabouts and street lights at
dangerous places on our roads. Meanwhile,
the Bridges Renewal Program is upgrading
bridges that are critical to truck access to local
“The 2017-18 Budget confirms that these
programs will continue through to 2020-21.
Their safety benefits will continue to flow.”
Mr Crouch welcomed the extension of
the keys2drive program, which is run by the
Australian Automobile Association and its
keys2drive provides a free coaching session to
learner drivers and their supervisors. The Budget
allocates $16 million to the program over the
next four years,
which will deliver
“The ATA has
the AAA to seek
funding to expand
the program to
about how to share the road safely with
trucks. Learner drivers need to understand the
importance of staying out of truck blind spots,
not cutting in and not overtaking trucks when
they are turning.
“We urge the Government to go ahead with
this expansion, now it has made the threshold
decision to continue the program.”
Mr Crouch said the Budget continued the
Government’s support for small business.
“The vast majority of trucking businesses are
small businesses. 94 per cent have a turnover of
$2 million or less,” Mr Crouch said.
“The Government’s decision to extend the
instant asset write-off to 30 June 2018 will
benefit many eligible businesses.
“We also welcome the $300 million incentive
to the states and territories to cut their red
tape. Much of the red tape affecting trucking
businesses is at state or territory level.
“We’d like to see the new National
Partnership for Regulatory Reform cut our red
tape burden and so we can spend more time
focusing on moving Australia’s freight safely
and productively,” he said.
