Truck­ies help nab bad driver


TRUCK driv­ers who called in in­for­ma­tion about a “risk-tak­ing car driver” were praised for their ac­tions by NSW Po­lice Traf­fic and High­way Pa­trol Com­mand Chief In­spec­tor Phillip Brooks.

Driv­ers called in a com­plaint about a Mazda sedan that was in­volved in an ac­ci­dent on the Newell High­way at Bel­lata.

Truck­ies said they didn’t have a prob­lem with help­ing take “id­iots like this” off the roads.

Keith Morrell said he didn’t mind co-op­er­at­ing with the “cop­pas”, but said “it would be good if the same re­spect was re­turned more of­ten”.

Bob Prideaux reck­ons more ef­fort should be made to foster this co-oper­a­tion.

Ma­ree Dens­ley wanted cops to sit in a truck with her to see be­hav­iour first-hand.

“There are words to de­scribe some driv­ers!”
