A Truck driver lost control of his brakes on the South Eastern Freeway on Tuesday 4 October 2019 and had to use the Mount Osmond arrester bed. 

Executive Officer for the SA Road Transport Association, Steve Shearer, said this may become more common as tough new laws come into effect from 1 May 2019 as truck drivers are too scared to use their brakes on steep descents.

He joins Jennie Lenman to explain.
