fatigue breach

Queensland Police have released video of a truckie being pulled over after a motorist called them concerned about the way he was driving.

On September 9 officers from the Road Policing Task Force Heavy Vehicle Enforcement Team intercepted the truck on the Gateway Motorway, Murarrie.

“It was actually a member of the public who had cause to speak to us about the manner of your driving,” an officer is heard telling the truckie in the clip below.

Police say that a subsequent inspection of his log book revealed he had travelled 1600km in the previous 19 hours.

“This driver is going to court charged with allegedly unlicensed driving and critical fatigue driving,” said the Queensland Police on their Facebook page.

“He also copped $1200 in fines.”
