Tragedies spark Australia’s largest ever trucking crackdown

Police have begun a state-wide operation to crackdown on truck companies and drivers breaking rules on our roads.

Over 600 trucks have been pulled over in the space of four hours, with Operation Rolling Thunder beginning at 6am on Thursday.

The operation was sparked after a horror summer on our roads, the catalyst being a heavy vehicle crash near Dubbo which killed two people.

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner of Traffic and Highway Patrol, Michael Corboy, tells Ray Hadley enough is enough.

“We want to really send a message to everyone in NSW. We’ve had enough. The line’s drawn in the sand.

“The reputable and good companies that look after their people, look after their trucks, have got nothing to fear from us.

“What we’re after is the people who try to get into this industry for a quick buck…who drive tired.”
