Special report: Is Vision Zero achievable in trucking?

Vision Zero is a noble goal for trucking, but it is a goal which will be far easier said than done.

At the heart of the sector’s ambitions lies automated technology, with everything from advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to Level 4 and 5 autonomy expected to play a part. However, the sector must realise that technology alone will not be enough. Implementation of safety-first cultures and driver training will also be key, as will clear regulatory guidance.
