Councillor’s gripes with trucks
DRIVERS have hit back after a Cranbourne councillor accused truckies of speeding and running red lights “like crazy”. But a local policeman tells them car drivers are really the issue. Ken L: As the policeman member stated, cars are far more of a problem in that area re running red lights and speeding as at least in my case whenever I travel. Their speeding is one thing that is an impossibility in a truck, as there is not enough distance between the lights and heavy traffic to generate enough speed between intersections to be even close to the speed limit when fully loaded. Glad to hear the voice of reason from those in uniform, hats off to that officer. Peter Mc: That particular councillor is full of it. The council has had the OK from VicRoads to have reduced speed limits in High Street. They would rather spend $50k on a Christmas tree instead of pushing for a bypass. The easement for the bypass has been in place since the late 50s early 60s. The area is growing too fast and infrastructure is about 20 years behind. Tara M: I’m so over people who pretend they know but when they sprout rubbish off they have no idea. I can say there’s a problem with local councillors who have no qualifications to make a judgement. Danny B: As usual pick on the trucks for revenue. Cos that’s all we are. A soft target for revenue.
