24 0

According to trucking publication FleetWatch, for every 10 heavy trucks on our roads, between six and seven of them are unroadworthy. On this episode of driving forward, we discuss rigorous road tests truck and heavy duty vehicles have to undertake and why it’s important to raise awareness for heavy-truck operators around the subject of brakes, tyres, lights, overloading and general maintenance of safety critical components. Joining CNBC Africa’s Tumisho Grater for this discussion are Gavin Kelly, Road Freight Association’s Technical and Operations Manager and Fleetwatch editor Patrick O’Leary.
