NSW Cops Bust Truck Driver With TV On Dash

Transporting stuff cross country is a tiring and lonely task, but bolting a 32cm-wide flat screen on your semi-trailer’s dashboard, hooking up a DVD player, then allegedly driving erratically on the Hume Highway is probably not the best way to go about it…

Alex in the comments is right, it does look wider than the 32cm police reported.

Goulburn Highway Patrol stopped the West Australian truckee on Thursday morning and issued a number of offences, including driving without a clear view and driving while using a handheld mobile phone. In a statement, police reiterated that the ”position and size of the screen meant a significant section of the windscreen was obscured, making driving extremely dangerous.” [NSW Police]
