Heavy Vehicle Taskforce officers worked alongside EPA officers to inspect heavy vehicles operated by a Dangerous Goods Provider at several locations last week, issuing several defect and infringement notices as part of Operation Valour...

As a result of the operation, officers inspected 28 trucks used to transport Dangerous Goods, and issued:

# Five infringements to drivers for non-compliant fire extinguishers and work diary offences.
