Speeding truck driver numbers down

12:15 pm on 16 January 2013

Police are praising a big fall in the number of speeding truck drivers.

A covert operation last month netted 100 trucks driving over the legal speed limit of 90km an hour.

In the aftermath of that operation, urgent meetings were held with trucking companies to urge them to take responsibility for the actions of their drivers.

A subsequent sting netted only 14 speeding trucks.

This fall has also been praised by the Transport Agency.
