Po­lice see the good and bad

Big Rigs - - EDITORIAL | OPINION -

NSW Po­lice Force Traf­fic and Com­mand High­way Pa­trol Com­mand com­mand chief in­spec­tor Philip Brooks saw both the good and bad sides of the trans­port in­dus­try when he headed out to check on Op­er­a­tion To­wards Zero.

So­cial me­dia users were glad to see both the good and bad be­ing high­lighted.

■ Je­van Hart: Yep good and bad in ev­ery in­dus­try. I think you need to look at times­lots also I heard of some­one be­ing turned away from a DC the other day for 20 min­utes late for their times­lot and made to re­book an­other times­lot twenty min­utes. Only takes a bit of traf­fic to lose half hour they or­dered the freight they should have no right to turn trucks away be­cause of a times­lot se­ri­ously.

■ Dave Luchich: More than happy to see more drug test­ing, but I be­lieve that the drug tak­ing is more for recre­ational use than for work pres­sure. Re­gard­less, I don’t want to share the road with any­one that’s un­der the in­flu­ence of them.
