Frustration over fine from EPA
A Bayswater man says he’s been hit with a hefty fine from the EPA for throwing a cigarette butt out of the window of a car.
There’s a few problems.
One, he doesn’t smoke.
Secondly, he wasn’t driving at the time.
Damian Murray told 3AW the $634 popped up in the mail.
Understandably, he followed it up.
He’s been told it’s up to him to prove his innocence – the reverse of normal justice.
“They didn’t want to hear anything I had to say, basically,” Damian said.
