Cootes Transport has been threatened to have its operating licence revoked after another two trucks were found this week to have serious brake defects.

The Roads Minister Duncan Gay said he had “lost confidence” in the “repeat offender” trucking company, owned by McAlesse Group, and has given the company two weeks to “show cause” as to why it should be allowed on NSW roads.

Cootes has been subject to random testing for defects since last October when one of its trucks was involved in a fatal accident in Sydney’s north.

This latest development for Cootes comes after the company lost its major contracts with BP petrol stations.
