We've had enough of the 'over-regulation'

ACCORDING to truckies on social media, veteran truckie Bunny Brown is right on the money.

Bunny, who is also the Australian Long Distance Owner Driver Association president, slammed what he described as the "over-regulation” of the industry, particularly in New South Wales.

Truckies applauded him for taking a stand.

Les Nicholas said: "Good on you Bunny. It takes us old blokes to make a stand. Where are the young ones? Can't see them for the dust”.

Ron Cook said he thought the trucking industry was the "most over-regulated, over-policed industry”.

"No wonder real drivers are getting out and the visa holders are taking over. Used to be a great industry. Not now.”

Max Brady, speaking about the state of the industry, mused: "It's actually got to a point where we'd be better off being replaced by robots”.
