That's why we established the National Truck Accident Research Centre (NTARC).
The National Truck Accident Research Centre is an independent research facility wholly funded by National Transport Insurance. It's our belief that effective research is crucial for gaining greater insights into serious heavy vehicle crashes. This will allow us to help make sustainable improvements to road safety in Australia - not just for transport operators but for all road users.
The NTARC has seen NTI publish several bi-annual accident research papers and forge relationships with various transport industry bodies to improve road safety. In fact, some of our staff have even been involved in establishing new associations and programs to improve safety!
In 2011, the NTARC established the ALLROADS Safety Advisory Board, comprised of representatives from government, trucking, insurance and academia. ALLROADS evaluates current road safety data to advise on practical applications, while also suggesting new research projects.
The NTARC has just released the NTI 2015 Major Accident Investigation Report. To find out more and download a copy of the report, click here.
