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.
