A truck driver who has not paid a toll for 15 years refuses to cough up the $ 60,000 he owes because he believes the accusations are unfair to motorists.
Mark Wearne, from southwestern Sydney, has been accused by the NSW government of multiple counts for not paying tolls.
Mr Wearne will appear in court on Friday, where he will claim that tolls for motorists mean that people pay twice to drive on a road, he said 9News.

& # 39; It is an unfair charge. Nobody has to pay it. It is not legal, & Mr. 39 said.

Mr. Wearne said he was trying to convince other motorists to join his protest because he believes they are being scammed.
Mr Wearne will appear in court Friday, claiming that tolls for motorists mean that people pay twice to drive on a road. Mr. Wearne thinks he can win the case and it can set a precedent for other motorists to take legal action against the government
Mr. Wearne thinks he can win the case and it could set a precedent for other motorists to take legal action against the government.
But if Mr Wearne was unsuccessful in his bid, he claimed that he would not pay the money due.
Sydney drivers paid a huge $ 1.1 billion in tolls in 2018, Australia's highest figure.
For comparison, the motorists in Brisbane paid $ 393 million in tolls.
