There are probably very few bicycle users in the immediate area mentioned below. Hines Road runs off Hanson Rd, parallel to the Port Expressway and gives access to a waste facility. Nevertheless I find the following bulletin from SAPOL today somewhat frightening.  The drivers mentioned had to get there, either from the Port Expressway or along Hanson Rd...

"Police from the Road Policing Section’s Tactical Team stopped 116 vehicles... at Wingfield today. Between 7.45am and 1pm Monday 9 July police... conducted the operation on Hines Road... 116 drivers were breath tested, 66 were drug tested, with four testing positive to driving with drugs in their system... 34 vehicles were defected...

The two men reported were a 55-year-old Wingfield man who provided a positive drug test for methamphetamine. Further checks on the man’s licence revealed he was driving disqualified. 

...a 43-year-old Seaton man was reported after he allegedly provided a false name to police... Further checks revealed the man’s licence had been cancelled... The man, who was driving a Volvo Tipper was also drug tested so which he returned a positive result for methamphetamine."

The idea of someone with a cancelled licence and a dodgy attitude to holding one, driving a 20 ton truck and being high on meth is a tad scary!
