January Firstly, A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all our readers for 2010. 2009 is now in the past and we can look back at the achievements and forward gains made. Most Importantly Truckersworld continues to attract new members and build on the Unity of Drivers in the UK, a place to talk and debate, have some fun and make friends with colleagues, This Unity amongst Drivers allows Truckersworld to use it to ensure the voice of the driver is heard and respected as we can add valuable input to the various debates and help to bring our issues to the front to those that can bring about change. We are now pleased to be able to talk with the RHA and I attend on behalf of Drivers their meetings with regards to Security. These meetings are attended by leading figures in the Industry and now include a voice of the driver. This has been matched by being recognised by the FTA and I am pleased to talk to the relative Directors who are also working on some of the issues. Very pleased when the FTA agreed to back and sponsor the Truck Theft Text Alert, just another small way in beating truck crime and with the help of the FTA received the endorsement from the AVCIS, (Truckpol) Truckersworld continues to be contacted by varying parties to ask our opinion on issues and things that reflect on our working conditions, all these receive a reply using your opinions that are displayed on the interactive forum to ensure we try to represent the true voice of the UK Drivers. I am sure 2010 will bring in new challenges but we will continue on the road we are starting to make ground on. The DfT with the DSA have now brought in the first step in providing Overnight Secure Lorry Parking across the UK to safeguard loads and drivers, we must continue to talk and push for further gains and to ensure that it is implemented and not just talked about. Truckersworld has a role to play in making sure they listen to us the drivers and provide the correct facilities that we need This year will also see a general election and Truckersworld is making plans to meet with the respective Transport Depts. to ask what they can offer if drivers consider voting for their party, the Truckersworld Lobby Team hope to be far more active and attend these meetings and many more on your behalf. All activity taken on by Truckersworld is posted on the forum for all to read and offer an opinion and is the base of our information. So please register on there and join in with the various debates and discussions. We have many new ideas and ventures to improve the workings of Truckersworld for you the drivers and over the coming months these changes will be put in place. Keeping you informed of our progress and allowing for easy communication between varying parties. Information is often difficult to come by and many members of Truckersworld work hard in keeping it up to date and easy to access. We offer help and advice, answer questions swiftly and ensure you receive what you are trying to find out. Also to add Truckersworld has in plans the 3rd Annual drivers get-together for its members, an evening of entertainment, a chance to meet and make new friends, so when travelling the highways there is an opportunity to meet up for a cuppa and talk about the day. We are a community of friends, and all are welcome. More will follow on the next news up date but for now Drive Safe and hope to speak to you on the Interactive forum.
