Truckie fined $2400

Bradley Graeme Deane (32) pleaded guilty to towing a trailer on a road, which did not comply with requirements applying to the trailer.

The court was told Deane was driving a prime mover on Tonkin Highway and the load on a trailer exceeded the permitted weight by more than 20,000kg, or 103 per cent.

Lawyer Brian Mahon said Deane worked for the family business Deane Contracting in Pinjarra.

Mr Mahon said an error was made on some paperwork.
