TCs report 2013: Scottish traffic area

  • 31 December 2013
  • By Roger Brown

In her report Joan Aitken reflected on the fact that in March 2013 she completed a decade as TC for Scotland. However, she said she remained concerned about the quality and authenticity of some transport manager arrangements. “For every revoked or insolvent operator there seems to be a phoenix”.

The TC added that she was “very heartened” by the decision to build a Vosa check-site at Glenluce on the A75 which links the M74 from Carlisle to the ferry crossings to Ireland.

“This year I particularly want to compliment the Vosa examiners in Cumbria and their road traffic police colleagues, with help of Scottish colleagues, for the very high standard of their joint working on the M6/M74 which led to the convictions of some seriously non compliant Scottish truck drivers and my being able to revoke their driving entitlements.”
