con­sider ig­nor­ing all crazi­ness, lo­cal or in­ter­state, oc­cur­ring in South Aus­tralia for in­clu­sion in Dogs&Chains. But the state po­lice un­der­mines us ev­ery time. So . . . you’d think lit­tle neg­a­tive could be made of the cru­cial act of re­cy­cling but you’d be wrong. This truck­load of re­cy­cling cans has been seized and a driver re­ported for traf­fic of­fences in the Barossa Val­ley. It was pulled over on the Sturt High­way at Wil­las­ton for a blown tyre and load­ing re­straint is­sues. Po­lice be­came sus­pi­cious when in­quiries re­vealed the driver and truck, laden with 125 bales of cans and bot­tles for re­cy­cling, had come from Victoria. High­way Pa­trol and En­vi­ron­ment Pro­tec­tion Au­thor­ity (EPA) of­fi­cers at­tended the scene. The driver was re­ported for driv­ing un­reg­is­tered and unin­sured and for load­ing of­fences. The truck was im­pounded. And the fine for at­tempt­ing to seek a re­fund for in­ter­state con­tain­ers is $30,000.
