Senior Traffic Commissioner welcomes chance to influence enforcement policy

  • 30 October 2013
  • By Chris Druce

Senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell has welcomed the Department for Transport’s (DfT) pledge to make greater use of the Compliance Forum in influencing Vosa enforcement policy.

In regards to the Work of the Vehicle Operating Standards Agency report and last week’s government response, the senior TC said:  “Traffic commissioners will consider carefully the government’s response to the Transport Select Committee report but we are pleased to note that the Compliance Forum is recognised as a means by which the senior traffic commissioner, along with other stakeholders, can influence the delivery of enforcement by Vosa.

“At the Transport Select Committee hearing, I said traffic commissioners had concerns about what Vosa was doing to target the serially and seriously non-compliant. We retain concerns around this type of illegal activity and I will therefore use the Compliance Forum to explore these matters further, on behalf of traffic commissioners.”

Bell added that she looked forward to meeting with Vosa and the DfT in November, when she will be introduced to roads minister Robert Goodwill MP for the first time, to examine how to take matters forward. 

“I also made clear to the Transport Select Committee, and continue to do so when speaking to the industry, that the relationship between traffic commissioners and Vosa is an absolutely key part of our work. It is vital that we engage at an early stage and work together,” Bell said.
