In this report, the Staysafe Committee examines the range of technologies available to manage heavy vehicle safety, and the potential of technology to make a greater contribution in the future.

It considers how to encourage industry take-up of new technologies, and the regulatory framework and other measures most likely to encourage early take-up and better safety outcomes.

The Committee also considers the 2017-18 holiday road toll and what early lessons can be drawn for encouraging safer driving, and particularly safer driving by and around heavy vehicles.

The report makes eight recommendations and ten findings.
