Telematics Key To Australian Road Safety Says Report

Fleet managers 'Down Under' face legislation that will require them to use more telematics and vehicle tracking devices. 

Australian publication Supply Chain Review reports that the country's National Road Safety Strategy 2011 – 2020 recommends sweeping changes to the trucking industry to reduce the national road toll by 30 percent over a 10-year period. 

The report, which is currently open for consultation, wants an increase in point-to-point speed cameras and a greater role for telematics to monitor speed, mass limits, road damage and braking and handling.
