Police Cardwell Heavy Vehicle Operation

Cardwell police operated a heavy vehicle on Victoria Street last Thursday.

Officers from Innisfail Highway Patrol, Cairns Dog Squad and other agencies assisted them.
The operation ran from 3-7 pm, with heavy rain sometimes hindering the operation. Focusing on heavy vehicles, officers issued several infringement notices for drivers failing to record information in their work diary as prescribed by regulation and one for an unrestrained child passenger.

Several roadside drug tests were conducted, with one driver returning a positive result. A 41-year-old Heatley man was issued with a licence suspension notice and is scheduled to appear at the Tully Magistrates Court on March 16.

The relevant sample was forwarded to a laboratory testing facility for scientific analysis, and officers will await those results before determining further enforcement action. Ongoing operations will continue throughout the year.
