Operation Bigwheels target
Victorian Parliament - 7 December 2016 - Ms Kealy - It is very disappointing that the Labor government’s Operation Bigwheels is targeting farmers and harvest contractors, causing massive disruption to harvest operations. We all know that our vehicles must be safe, but why is this program run during harvest and intended to penalise truck operators rather than offer them checks prior to the harvest season to ensure their vehicles are safe in preparation for harvest? It is another example of Labor being completely out of touch with country Victoria.
