'Cheeky' is the best description for this driver

CHEEKY truckie is an apt description of the Fuso cement truck driver who illegally parked on one side of a busy roundabout during the Victorian Spring Racing Carnival.

He activated the hazard lights and bolted into a pub about 15m away where there was a TAB.

Scores of people at a nearby café looked on and most pondered that he had slipped inside for a flutter on the horses.

During the few minutes he was inside a police patrol car negotiated the roundabout and didn't book him.

Officers probably thought he was ready to drop off some concrete and even though he was illegally parked didn't hold up any traffic.

The truckie came running out and into the driver's seat of the Fuso and would have had no idea that his actions were the subject of such conversation.
