Victoria Police Issues Landmark Heavy Vehicle Surrender Notice

Rate this post

In a historic move, Victoria Police issued its first-ever heavy vehicle notice to surrender.

This unprecedented event occurred on May 30, when the Greater Dandenong Highway Patrol intercepted a truck on the Princes Highway in Hallam. The truck was being driven by a 33-year-old man from Berwick who was found to have a suspended license due to a prior drink driving offence.

In response to this violation, Victoria Police took the extraordinary step of issuing a notice to surrender the heavy vehicle. This order mandates that the truck be surrendered for a period of 30 days, during which time it will be impounded. The cost of this surrender is set at $675, which the driver is required to pay.

This action is akin to the impoundment procedures typically applied to smaller vehicles but is notable as the first application to a heavy vehicle in the state’s history.
