Ryan’s Warrnambool has installed the speed restriction on its 12 new Scania trucks and will gradually adjust the rest of the 85-vehicle fleet.

The company, which has an almost 60-year history in Warrnambool, has made the decision based on road safety, pollution and economics.

Managing director Graham Ryan said the decision was a big step for the business and he realised not all drivers were entirely happy with it.

“I have that much respect for truck drivers,” he said.

“I believe in them and know what they have to do every day. All the time we hear about a truck causing an accident.

“They carry a huge responsibility, you can’t understand what they go through.

“I’ve got a heap of admiration for the drivers. They are the ones that will have to wear this,” he said.

“We’re pretty passionate about this. Hopefully we’re the leaders. How many times is there an accident before a children’s crossing is installed? We don’t want to wait for something to happen.”

He said the company was being proactive.

“The transport industry has to make a change to get the monkey off its back.”

Mr Ryan said the business would adjust its operations to suit the speed limit.

“We trialled it on different trucks last year,” he said.

“It would add about 15 minutes onto a trip to Melbourne.”

The move follows Timboon bus company Pope’s decision late last year to reduce the speed on their buses to 90km/h.

With a media campaign starting today, Mr Ryan said he knew of one other truck company in Australia that had made the change.

He said slowing down would also allow other road users to safely pass the trucks.

“This decision is based on safety, environment and to keep the business alive and sustainable.”

“We have a responsibility to the public,” Mr Ryan said.

“I don’t want to wake up and see a crash with one of our trucks in tomorrow’s newspaper.

“I know the drivers are worried. I’m sure we’ll get some flak.

“Either way we’re going to get it but how can you argue against safety,” Mr Ryan said.

“I don’t want to see a disaster like we have seen with trains and buses.”

He said he hoped the speed adjustment would also make a positive impact on the environment.

“We’re hoping to use less fuel and less carbon emissions,” he said. “Our major customers are very interested in in carbon emission reductions. The community also has expectations.

“On the financial side, we do hope to make financial gains.

“We have 180 families at this business,” he said.
