It's the crusade to stop the carnage on Aussie roads.
Now, trucking king Lindsay Fox tells A Current Affair how he plans to make it happen.
Statement from Coles:
Coles takes safe transport practices very seriously. Our transport business is managed by large and reputable transport providers such as Linfox and Toll, who are very proud of their safety record.
We require our transport providers to comply with all road safety laws and regulations, and all our freight contracts include fatigue management programs.
We believe that 'black box' technology installed in Australian freight trucks could help improve driver and road safety, and we would support any industry moves down this path.
Statement from Woolworths:
Woolworths supports the use of telematics and other technologies that deliver improved transport safety outcomes.
The majority of the Woolworths fleet, including all of our metropolitan trucks, are already equipped with GPS.
We are currently working with the NSW Roads and Maritime Services and a number of responsible operators to pilot a 5 Star Trucking concept that would promote the safety performance of different operators.
Statement from Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Anthony Albanese:
While a State Government responsibility, the Federal Government is committed to exploring all options that deliver increased road safety.
With the historic achievement of a single National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, which starts work in January 2013, there will finally be a single point of contact where such ideas can be raised and investigated.
