Truck Safety

On Tuesday, we were visited  by Arthur and Calum from the Dunedin Carrying Company and Constable Hugh Tait from the Police Commercial Vehicle Investigation. They came out to tell us about truck safety because we have logging trucks going past our school.

We learnt that you need to be at least 2 metres away from the truck so the truck driver can see us. Trucks can take a long time to stop especially when they have a heavy load of logs.

We all had a turn at sitting in the driver's seat and had fun pulling the wire that make the horn sound. The horn was very loud!

Thank you Arthur, Calum, and Constable Tait for teaching us about being safe around trucks.
