Hospital staff want to park for free while they work

It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

The third truck driver in as many days on north coast roads has been charged as part of Operation National Route 1, after his vehicle was detected allegedly travelling 24km/h over the speed limit.

Just after midnight on Monday morning police attached to Byron Bay Highway Patrol stopped a truck speeding southbound on the Pacific Highway

Police checked the vehicle’s speed and registered it travelling at 124km/h in the 100km/h signposted zone.

Officers stopped the truck a short distance down the highway. The 38-year-old driver, from Cedar Grove in Queensland, was issued with an infringement notice and the truck was defected.

The truck’s speed limiter will be checked for possible tampering later in the week.
