A Queensland transport lobby group wants drivers banned for life if they drive their oversized truck into a bridge that is too low more than once.

According to Rail Back on Track’s Robert Dow, offenders should “automatically lose their licence for up to six months after a first offence” and if it happens a second time they should then be banned.
