This is exactly what young people need
STUDENTS and teachers at a high school in Sydney have finally been given the kind of education truck drivers around Australia have been screaming for.
For the third year in a row, the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command - NSW Police taught students at the Asquith Boys High School the ins and outs of road safety.
Truckies couldn't have been happier and expressed their feelings on social media.
Scott Durston said it was a great initiative to get youngsters behind the wheel of a big rig.
"Better still if they sat (as a) passenger and went for a drive. I know it opened the eyes of my daughter, taking her for a short drive in my truck,” he said.
"I think I was able to pass on some valuable knowledge to her on how to drive around heavy vehicles. Should be almost part of the licence test, 30 minutes in the passenger seat of a truck.”
