In Victoria, 47 bus rollaways have occurred since 2000 resulting in minor injuries to drivers and passengers, and damage to infrastructure and vehicles. Interstate, bus rollaways have resulted in driver fatalities.
Recognising the risk bus rollaways pose to bus safety, TSV has undertaken a project working with industry to identify ways to eliminate or minimise the risks. This document is the result of that project.
The aim of this document is to assist industry to build its capacity to manage the safety risks arising from bus rollaways.
