Yogi plans to fight $1500 fine

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

IT’S TIME for a new li­cence for truck driv­ers.

That was one of the thoughts Glenn “Yogi” Ken­dall of Ken­dall Truck­ing and Co and Out­back Truck­ers fame had on his last seg­ment of The Big Rigs pod­cast.

Each week Yogi shares his thoughts in a seg­ment called Five Min­utes in a Park­ing Bay with Yogi.

He spoke about his most re­cent fine - not a work di­ary in­fringe­ment, but a fine for driv­ing “on or over the solid edge line” un­der­neath a Safe T Cam.

He said he drove over on the line so he wouldn’t crash into a car that had moved into his lane.

“I couldn’t do any­thing about the car that was bor­der­line en­croach­ing into my lane,” he said.

The fine was al­most $1500 and four points.

Fed up with the huge penal­ties, he sug­gested maybe truck driv­ers would ben­e­fit from their own pro­fes­sional li­cence that holds more points than reg­u­lar driv­ers.

Yogi said he would be fight­ing the fine.

“It’s just one of those things in life and I’m go­ing to be fight­ing it.”
