UN­SIGNED COPS A FINE

Owner Driver - - Owner/Driver -

I was in­ter­cepted on June 2 by VicRoads and awarded a $160 fine for ‘fail­ure to record info in work di­ary’. This for­get­ful oc­cur­rence took place on May 10.

The mis­de­meanour was for not sign­ing a page at end of the day. Such a heinous crime.

My ques­tion is, what the hell does this have to do with road safety?

I would like to hear com­ments from Owner//Driver’s colum­nists – Shel­don, Wilkie, Han­nifey and The In­ter­stater in re­gard to me tak­ing this to court (just to waste more of their and my time), if it can be

fought on the grounds of ir­rel­e­vance and noth­ing to do with road safety. Chop­per (Real name and lo­ca­tion with­held by re­quest) – 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in trans­port and my first log book fine Vic­to­ria
