JOIN THE 'TRUCK FRIENDLY' STICKER PROGRAM

Ken believes that when coming up behind a vehicle on the road, including a caravanner or RV driver you never know what you will get.

                                 “Life is like a box of chocolates.”

Drivers may be informed, courteous, cooperative, uneducated, or they may be just plain ignorant.

For example: - We have all heard of and seen many drivers of all vehicles complain when vehicles speed up on overtaking lanes or follow too closely to the vehicle in front so you cannot overtake.

The free, large 30cm, green ‘I’M TRUCK FRIENDLY’ stickers are available at locations throughout Australia and are designed to go on the rear of the caravan and RV so that following drivers know that the driver in front has read the web site driving guides, and knows how to help other drivers, wants to help other drivers, and they have a UHF radio to communicate. (Turned on)

Only drivers who qualify by having read the web site, wanting to help other drivers, and have a UHF qualify for a free sticker. NO UHF – NO sticker.

There is a list of over 30, free sticker, collection points throughout Australia on the web site below with many being tourist/visitor information centers, caravan dealerships and mechanical workshops throughout Australia.

Smaller 120mm, ‘I SUPPORT THE TRUCK FRIENDLY PROGRAM’ stickers are also available for cars, trucks, offices etc.

Reading the words ‘Truck’ and ‘Friendly’ on a sticker on the back of a truck at the traffic lights or on the highway may help to stimulate thought on the needs of trucks when turning etc.

Truck drivers seeing a supportive sticker, and receiving a friendly call on the UHF offering help, will also go a long way to help stop the negative thought cycle of truck drivers who spend long hours alone behind the wheel.

  • Suicide is the second highest cause of death in truck drivers under 39 years of age.
  • Mr Michael Kaine is National Secretary of the TWU and he also oversees insurance claims made by some 100,000 transport workers to their superannuation fund. "There are between three and six suicide claims every month — a horrific number," he said.
  • A Monash University study found the percentage of drivers aged under 35 suffering severe distress was almost double that of the average Australian male of the same age.
  • Truck drivers are 13 times more likely to die at work than any other Australian worker.

THE ' I'M TRUCK FRIENDLY' STICKERS SHOW THAT YOU ARE PART OF THE SOLUTION AND NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone get a free large Truck Friendly sticker?

NO. The large 30cm green Truck Friendly stickers are designed to show drivers following that you:

a. Have a UHF radio fitted and turned on. No UHF – No Sticker.
b. Have read and understand the driving guides on the Truck Friendly web site.
c. You want to help other drivers and are friendly and cooperative.

Unless you tick all the above you do not qualify for a sticker. The last thing we want is a following driver trying to call up a vehicle who does not have a UHF. This will cause frustration, the very thing we are trying to avoid.

You can still be courteous and Truck Friendly if you don’t have a UHF radio fitted.

How can I get a FREE, 'I'm truck friendly' sticker for my van / RV?

If you qualify, as above, you can find a list of our sticker collection points throughout Australia. Call into any one of these Truck Friendly supporter businesses and you can collect your FREE, – ‘IM TRUCK FRIENDLY’ large green sticker.

Alternatively, if your are unable to get to one of these locations, Truck Friendly, can post some stickers and brochures out to you direct.

However as Truck Friendly does not yet receive any funding for postage etc, we ask that we be reimbursed for the postage and handling. For up to 8 stickers we charge $20.00 postage and handling. For more than 8 we charge $30.00.

Why are the stickers so big?
The 30 cm green stickers are designed to be easily identified and read from a distance by a following vehicle. The safe following distance on the highway for a truck or car towing a caravan is a min of 110 metres in good weather on good roads. At that distance the stickers need to be large to be noticed and easily identified.

The stickers may look big holding them in your hand; however, they soon look substantially smaller when placed on the rear of a large van or RV.

Can I get a smaller sticker?

Yes. Smaller 12cm stickers are now available . These smaller promotional stickers are designed to stimulate thought about driving habits, stimulate a friendlier attitude to driving and trucks, promote the Truck Friendly program and show the driver is interested in safe driving.

These smaller stickers can be placed on cars, caravans, trucks, shops etc.

They do not replace the larger green stickers that show the driver has a UHF fitted and cannot be identified from 120m by a following vehicle due to their smaller size.

Where should I place my sticker?
The large green stickers should be placed in the upper rear, driver’s side, of your RV or caravan. By placing all stickers in approximately the same location it makes them much easier to recognise from a distance.
Why are the stickers green and round?
The stickers are green and round to make then easily identifiable on the rear of the caravan or RV from a long distance. Many other stickers are rectangular in shape so the round Truck Friendly stickers will be easily recognised while driving.
