August 16, 2013

More than 12,000 heavy vehicles in New South Wales were targeted over four days as part of a joint operation to detect unregistered vehicles, work diary offences and load restraint issues.

Operation Candid VII involving NSW Police and Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) ran between August 11 and 14.

A total of 12,173 heavy and light vehicles were checked on the Newell Highway at Boggabilla in the state’s north, with three detected with non-compliant speed limiters, 20 found with work diary breaches and 10 stopped for unregistered offences.

Traffic and Highway Patrol’s Superintendent Stuart Smith says there will be further operations to ensure heavy vehicles stay safe on roads.

"There were a number of operators who weren’t compliant with road and safety regulations which included driving unregistered vehicles or with non-compliant speed limiters," Smith says.

"We will continue these joint operations to ensure all motorists and heavy vehicle operators are compliant and not putting other road users at risk."

Other results include:

  • A truck with no number plate
  • Four heavy vehicles with illegal number plates
  • An oversize vehicle
  • Six low-loader infringement notices
  • One unlicensed driver
  • Three oversize infringement notices
  • Two heavy vehicle load restraint offences; and
  • 14 light vehicle offences
