Weigh Bridge Avoidance

Weighbridge Avoidance Offences

Weighbridges and Heavy Vehicle Safety Stations are located all over Australia, with a heavy concentration in the Eastern States.

NSW has two of the main locations in the country, Marulan and Mt White. Victoria has Broadford, and there are many others scattered about the highways. To drive past, or “avoid” one of these weighbridges whilst open is regarded as a serious offence, and the penalties reflect this.

Even if a sign indicates the HVSS is closed, some require you to enter anyway. As is often the case, drivers have a reasonable excuse in many circumstances, and this is often ignored or overlooked. If you receive a penalty notice or otherwise for a weighbridge avoidance offence, call us 24/7 for legal advice that may save you dollars and points.
