As a leading road safety advocate, National Transport Insurance is encouraging professional drivers to take extra care on the roads during October and November due to a consistent increase in the frequency of claims.
“National Transport Insurance’s data, including our 2017 National Truck Accident Research Report, shows that, year on year, October and November are amongst the worst months for claims frequency,” said NTI CEO Tony Clark.
“In 2016, we saw in increase of over 70% in the number of collision claims being reported in October and November.
“This not only included collisions with other vehicles, but also with roundabouts, power poles and more.
“At National Transport Insurance, we know that the majority of truck drivers on our roads are highly skilled professionals who lead by example in sharing the road, however it’s important that all drivers are proactive and take extra care during the busy lead-up to the holiday season.”
