FleetWatch was launched in 1993 initially as a fleet risk management journal, and has since evolved into a trucking magazine covering all aspects of the trucking industry with the primary focus on the “issues” facing modern day truckers. The magazine operates under a banner of independent and objective journalism while striving to elevate the trucking industry onto a platform of high priority within the context of the South African economy. We regard ourselves as partners in the industry rather than just mere reporters on the business of trucking. Our prime readership target is aimed at management operating in all areas of transport - ‘professional haulage’ for reward as well as ancillary operators who run transport as part of their overall operations. Many companies have followed the modern trend of outsourcing their transport and the suppliers of such services are also addressed as our target audience. We also get to product suppliers and service providers. The latest Audit Bureau of Circulation figures (January - June 2009) certifies our current distribution at 5 050 copies per month. FleetWatch was voted by the Specialist Press Association as South Africa’s Best Transport magazine six years in a row - 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 & 1999. The magazine has won 60 awards for publishing and journalistic excellence since its launch in 1993 - the most ever won by any magazine in the history of MPASA. (Magazine Publishers Association of South Africa). To get in touch with us, please make use of the FEEDBACK form posted on our site or call us on +27 11 794 2490 – we’d love to hear from you! In the meantime, we leave you with the highest Irish wish: “May the wind be always at your back”. Keep on Trucking, Patrick O’Leary Publisher and Managing Editor

May 23rd: I was enjoying watching my daughter compete in a horse show this morning when I got word of a truck runaway at the notorious ‘Death Junction’ – the Pinehaven/N14 intersection. I left the show and rushed to the scene. It was chaos. Hundreds of 4 litre cans of refined vegetable oil labelled ‘USAid – From the American people’ – were strewn all over the road. The road was slippery from the spilt contents of the many cans that had burst open in the crash. Somewhere in among those cans and boxes was a body. It was the truck driver. He had driven down the hill and unable to brake, careened through the intersection. He hit a small Mazda, the occupants of whom were thankfully OK after the hit. As the truck continued, the driver jumped from the cab in a panicked attempt to save his life. He should have stayed in the cab. His life jump turned into a death jump. He fell under the wheels of his own truck and was crushed to death. A silver blanket covered his battered body. But where was the truck? Had it been taken away? No. It was about 1 km further up the N14 where it had come to a halt – but not before hitting a car, pushing it ahead of it, crushing the car and its two occupants as it careened up the highway with no driver behind the wheel. Paramedics used the jaws of life to cut the two occupants out of the crumpled and battered car. The one was dead. The other was treated and airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. I briefly inspected the underneath of the trailer. What I saw, I didn’t like. I think I know why that truck became a ‘runaway’ down that notorious hill. It was, as usual, all so sad and so unnecessary. I watched as the second body was put into the van. All that was left was a pool of blood on the road – and an empty shoe. FleetWatch extends its condolences to the families of those who died. They shouldn’t have. Mr President, my invitation stands. Come and walk in the blood with us....
