Truckie fights back at the “car­nage on the road” la­bel

Big Rigs - - HOT TOPICS ONLINE -

A TRUCKIE driv­ing through north Queens­land took to Face­book over the week­end to vent his frus­tra­tion at be­ing la­belled the rea­son for the “car­nage on the roads” by a po­lice of­fi­cer.

Read­ers were shocked by the claims Trevor Vale made in a Face­book video.

Peter Young: “Abus­ing trans­port op­er­a­tors has be­come a ‘cul­ture’ in Aus­tralia. Po­lice of­fi­cers such as the one in ques­tion needs to be re­minded he is a law en­force­ment of­fi­cer, not a law maker and as such should keep his opin­ion­ated views to him­self.”

Steve Ne­hoff: “Not a truer bunch of words have been said. I call on the gov­ern­ment de­part­ments to ac­tu­ally put the sta­tis­tics out there for all to see re­gard­ing the ‘car­nage’. Scare the pants off the gen­eral pub­lic, not once but hun­dreds of times, in all forms of the me­dia. The per­cent­ages will shock the hell out of ev­ery­one. What will be done... noth­ing. The poor truck­ers will con­tinue to cop the brunt of the blame be­cause there isn’t too many peo­ple who will ac­cept th­ese facts!!! Why, be­cause we’re easy tar­gets for the rev­enue rais­ing of­fi­cial­dom, al­ways have been and al­ways will be.” Stu­art Rod­ney Masters: “Lets not judge I like to hear cops side, al­ways two sides to a story.

“I am not say­ing its right but we only have one per­sons word of this.

“Ev­ery time I have be­ing pulled over up north I have found the cops to be great to deal with.”
