Caravans fill up the rest areas on holiday

LOCAL police need to hit up caravan drivers with on the spot fines.

That's the only way that things are going to change, says truck driver Denis-Malene Maddick.

"The message will get up the highways quick enough,” he said.

"Only need to do it so many times before the penny drops hopefully. Nothing else seems to work with these ignorant travellers.”

Many Big Rigs followers shared their experiences with caravan drivers and other motorists after a video showing caravans parking in rest areas was shared on Facebook.

Daniel Schroeders encouraged truckies to "take photos and send them off to 'snap send and solve'”.

"Then send photos off to local councils and the drivers get a parking fine in the mail. It doesn't move them on straight away, but they get the message for the future.”
