The truck drivers' union is furious a trucking firm has been let off without even a slap on the wrist after it wouldn't let its drivers take breaks. Higgins Concrete in Wellington was investigated by the Transport Agency after a tip-off from one its workers. The investigation found logbooks had been falsified to look like breaks were being taken but in fact drivers were working up to 12 hours without one. Emma Hatton reports.
