Did you know that South Africa has the 10th largest road network in the World? Our road network covers a distance of 750,000km of which about 134.000km are tarred roads.
Truck drivers drive on these roads 24/7 and unfortunately, they are often under pressure of severe time schedules to deliver their cargo. Driver tiredness and driver fatigued are constant threats to all road users.
