Federal minister for infrastructure and transport Darren Chester joined ANCAP to launch a new consumer information app developed to help Australians make safer vehicle choices.
In a global first, the ANCAP Safety’ app allows customers to access ANCAP safety rating information in the lead-up to a vehicle purchase.
It also provides additional safety-related content, features and news to see the conversation of safer vehicles continue post-purchase.
Chester expressed the Government's overall support for the app and the contribution it will make to further initiatives.
“Getting Australians to drive the safest car they can afford will help to reduce road trauma and by checking this app, vehicle buyers will be better informed before they make their choice.
“Safer vehicles are a vital element of the Safe Systems approach to road safety and the Australian Government is proud to share this important new tool to enhance the safety of all Australian road users.”
