The Expert Interviews – Julian O’Shea: Are Truckzillas too big for Aussie Streets?

I was thrilled to have a chat with Julian O’Shea – A Monash University Lecturer, as well as; social entrepreneur, humanitarian engineer and advocate for innovation in higher education. He creates educational videos on YouTube, TikTok and Instagram about design, cities and interesting places.

After reading his article in the Sydney Morning Herald, I knew I had to ask him to talk to us more about this obsession some drivers have of oversized trucks. During our chat, I was finding out about so many more issues we will be soon be having to tackle, as we make our way around and through our cities to work, shop and play and live happily. How do we do this, without bringing more vehicles into the already congested traffic areas?

Consumers choosing to drive Truckzillas (oversized Utes/SUV’s) on suburban roads are on the rise, but so is the pedestrian casualty rates! Is this just a new craze for American oversized Dodge/Rams trucks on our roads, or is it truly a significant safety issue for Australian motorists and road users?

Listen for free now! Also, please excuse a couple of little mistakes (I kept calling electric scooters mobility scooters! LOL) – it was only my second ever recorded interview, and yes, I was a tiny bit nervous!) Enjoy the drive, Liz.
