For the third time this year I have received a fine for my semi trailer being towed behind a prime mover, when the prime mover has been charged. Obviously the trailer runs down the highway on its own, I was told if I added the trailer to the toll tag I may be still charged twice but it was up to me to check my statements to make sure that wasn't happening. I reluctantly agreed to add the trailer to the toll tag, and here we are again with another fine for the same trailer with the same rego obviously doing a run up the highway on its own again without a truck pulling it. I have spent so much time trying to fix this problem at my expense, I do believe Go Via is in breach of the Transport Infrastructure act by charging us for a vehicle that clearly has already been charged. When you phone you are treated like an idiot, I would of thought it is up to Go via to fix this problem, not send me threatening letters when the rego of the trailer is attached to a toll tag!
This is a rort, how many semis are running up and down the toll road and being charged twice, they don't seem to check and refund if you don't complain!
