Rock throwers: Truckies unite on Facebook

The spineless, sick act of throwing rocks at moving vehicles at places like the Moree Bypass, is about the lowest of lows.

Rock throwers: Truckies unite on Facebook
Enough is enough - Truckies unite.

 

Truckies have had enough, authorities have had enough, yet the issue seems increasingly difficult to curb.

The Report Rock Throwing Facebook group was started back in 2014 with the aim of collating evidence, in the form of photos and descriptions, from drivers who have been targeted by rock throwers.

The aim of the online group, according to the founder Andrew Wilson, is to get enough evidence together to make a submission to the relevant members of parliament.

Andrew made Sonja White, the truckie who sent Owner//Driver a letter to the editor about rock throwing recently, an admin of the Facebook group few days back.

Thanks to Sonja’s following in the trucking industry the group’s membership has tripled, but it needs to continue - the more people in this group the better.

Let’s unite as an industry to stamp out rock throwing - click here to join the group.
