Truck caught speeding on Newell Hwy

NSW Police commander slams 'lethal weapon' driver clocked at 25km/h over the speed limit

June 14, 2012

A truck driver was caught travelling at 25 kilometres over the speed limit in NSW last night.

The 32-year-old South Australia man was driving at 125km/h in a 100km/h zone at the Newell Highway in Warkton.

He was issued a speeding infringement notice and fined for work diary breaches.

The B-double driver was also given a defect notice and ordered to a heavy vehicle inspection station.

The NSW Police Operations Commander of Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Superintendent Stuart Smith, says police make no exemption when putting public safety first.

"We come down on these offenders hard because they are driving lethal weapons which can kill and maim in an instant," Smith says.

"As professional drivers, they must come to realise they have a duty of care to not endanger other road users."
