IN­COR­RECT LOGBOOK HOURS

Central Telegraph - - NEWS |COURT -

CAMERON John McAdam has been cart­ing cat­tle for 25 years and he said it’s all he has ever done. How­ever a lapse in his log book has left him be­fore the Biloela Mag­is­trates Court.

On Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 29 McAdam pleaded guilty to one charge of op­er­at­ing un­der stan­dard hours as a solo driver with rest less than min­i­mum rest time.

He was trans­port­ing drought stricken cat­tle that had come from north Queens­land to an area around the Ba­nana Shire when po­lice in­ter­cepted him on June 17 to in­spect his heavy ve­hi­cle and log book.

The record showed he had only had about four hours rest in a 24-hour pe­riod when the min­i­mum was seven hours. As a re­sult he was fined $1500 and a con­vic­tion was recorded by Mag­is­trate Beck­in­sale.
