NRMA Supports Newcastle & Hunter Transport Awareness Day

NRMA Motoring & Services' Mobile Member Centre will deliver important road safety concepts to the thousands of visitors at the 2009 Newcastle Transport Awareness Day this Sunday 1 November.

Local NRMA Director Kyle Loades said the Newcastle Transport Awareness Day is a perfect opportunity to reinforce important road safety concepts and increase awareness of the transport and trucking industries to all road users.

"The day is a great opportunity to learn about truck and transport safety and to promote the importance of road, vehicle and driver safety through interactive crash test videos and a range of online road safety activities," Mr Loades said.

"Strongly supported by the Australian Trucking Association, visitors to Newcastle's annual event on the foreshore this Sunday will have the opportunity to find out more about the NRMA's Share the Roads campaign, which encourages more driver awareness about other vehicles on the road.

"We would especially like drivers of all vehicles to think more about sharing the roads with heavy vehicles and trucks - there will be double the trucks on our roads by 2020 and triple by 2050.

"Roads are getting busier and drivers need to be far more courteous to each other and allow extra time planning trips.

"Visitors to the show will also be able to find out more about NRMA's Safer Driving School in Newcastle and the benefits of lessons for both younger and older drivers.

"The Newcastle & Hunter Region Road Transport Awareness Day group includes truck drivers, transport businesses and suppliers to the transport industry, community representatives, NSW Police, RTA and Newcastle Council and does an incredible job in promoting road safety and the transport industry."

Mr Loades said the NRMA's participation at events such as the Newcastle Transport Awareness Day would not be possible without the support of its partners in road safety, Volvo Trucks and Subaru.

The NRMA's Mobile Member Centre will be on display at the Newcastle Transport Awareness Day this Sunday 1 November 2009, 9:00am-4:00pm.

Location: Newcastle Foreshore
