Trailer trou­ble

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

A MOTORIST has been is­sued with an in­fringe­ment no­tice af­ter be­ing caught tow­ing two trail­ers. On Oc­to­ber 27, an Eton po­lice of­fi­cer ob­served a ve­hi­cle travel past the sta­tion tow­ing a trailer which was also tow­ing an­other trailer.

The po­lice of­fi­cer in­ter­cepted the ve­hi­cle a short dis­tance down the road and it was dis­cov­ered one trailer was also un­reg­is­tered and the other was se­verely im­pacted by rust. When ques­tioned, it is al­leged the driver ad­mit­ted to hav­ing driven for more than four hours from The Gem­fields and was al­most home.

It’s al­leged he de­scribed his own ac­tions in tow­ing the two trail­ers in this fash­ion as ‘stupid’. An in­fringe­ment no­tice for tow­ing an un­reg­is­tered trailer and tow­ing a ve­hi­cle when not safe to do so was is­sued as a re­sult to the res­i­dent of Eton.
