Illegal truck parking

Following concerns raised by the community regarding truck parking police teamed up with Mitchell Shire Council to address the matter.

From 1am on July 1 to 5am on July 2, officers began patrols in Beveridge where one heavy vehicle was detected, which was identified as being parked for a certain period of time and later infringed for parking longer than one hour in a built-up area.

Officers then went to Taylors Lane in Wallan, where there were a total of seven heavy vehicles parked. All seven were issued with infringements – five by Mitchell Shire Council and two by police.

There were another four heavy vehicles issued infringement notices in the Wallan township at various locations.

In Kilmore, there was one infringement issued for parking longer than one hour, and one for parking on a council nature strip.

Also there was one infringement issued in Broadford for parking longer than one hour.

A total of 15 infringements were issued during the six-hour period – 13 by Mitchell Shire Council and two by police.

Police say the operation was only considered due to the concerns raised by residents.

“We want to remind those that feel inclined to parked their trucks in residential areas of the consequences. It is not only the parking that impedes drivers visibility but the starting of loud trucks in the early hours of the morning that impacts local residents,” the police spokesperson said.
