May 17, 2013

Toll Express’s Melbourne yard will be used to launch an annual police campaign targeting unsafe practices in the heavy vehicle sector.

Victoria Police Superintendent Neville Taylor will use the Altona North facility in Melbourne to kick off Operation Austrans, which involves police agencies across Australia and New Zealand.

Toll says it is pleased to support Operation Austrans and that the business takes its chain of responsibility obligations seriously.

"At Toll we believe that everyone has the right to go home safely and that no task is so important it can’t be done safely," Toll Corporate Affairs Director Andrew Ethell says.

"Unfortunately too many people in our line of business have experienced the trauma and personal impacts associated with motor vehicle incidents. Therefore, we welcome the commitment by agencies present at today’s launch to ensuring the road is safe for all users, including our partners in the road transport industry."

Police last year pinged drivers for a number of offences, including speeding, failing to wear a seatbelt, unlicensed driving, drink and drug driving and not complying with fatigue management obligations.
