A TRUCK travelling at 127km/h at Holbrook this week has drawn the ire of the state’s top traffic cop.
Albury highway patrol officers pulled over the north-bound B-double about 11pm on Monday.
It had been detected travelling at 127km/h in the 100km/h zone on the Hume Highway.
The driver immediately lost four demerit points, and received a $521 fine.
He was also handed a defect notice for not having a compliant speed limiter.
Superintendent Robert Ryan, who was appointed the state highway patrol commander last week, warned truck drivers to slow down as traffic volume peaked in the lead-up to Christmas.
“We cannot and will not tolerate speeding on NSW roads, especially not by heavy vehicles,” Supt Ryan said.
“All too often we witness the shocking tragedy one speeding truck can cause.”
