Truckie doing 127km/h

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.”
