We at the kennel sometimes
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.
