VIDEO: Truckie fined $1500 avoiding car

By: Cobey Bartels


Well-known truck driver Glenn 'Yogi' Kendall copped 4 points and a $1,500 Safe-T-Cam fine for crossing the white line after avoiding hitting a car

 

"I got a four point, $1,500 fine for driving on or over the solid edge line," Yogi says in a video posted to Facebook.

The incident occurred on 1 August, Yogi says, and he received the fine a few weeks later.

"I couldn't do anything about the car that was borderline encroaching into my lane," he says.

"Just because I drove on the edge line to save my arse from not hitting a car, I get the fine.

"If i'd hit that car, well I guess it would have been truck versus car. Another truck accident in the media."



Yogi says he requested the photo and he plans to post it up on Facebook as well as requesting a letter of review. 

"I'm going to ask for a letter of review, that's the next step.

"Why NHVR, why RMS, is it so fierce? Why are these fines so fierce for driving on the edge line, the left-hand fog line?

"I'm appalled, I really am appalled."

Owner//Driver has contacted Yogi for an update on the situation.
