Devon and Cornwall crack down finds 1,000 LGV driver offences

  • 13 January 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Over 1,000 offences were found by police and the DVSA (formerly Vosa and the DSA) in a crackdown on rogue hauliers in Devon and Cornwall.

Some 376 commercial vehicle drivers were stopped for a total of 1,164 offences as part of Operation Fatigue, which spanned across three weeks in November and December.

The majority of offences were dealt with by fixed penalty notice, and Devon and Cornwall Police said £34,410 was raised in fines.

Some vehicles were immobilised until fines were paid or they had taken their rest breaks.

Head of roads policing Inspector Richard Pryce said both UK and foreign-registered vehicles were stopped in the operation for offences such as tachograph falsification and insecure loads. He was unable to reveal to Commercialmotor.com how many of the vehicles were foreign-registered.

“This operation has demonstrated that we are prepared to act and I am hopeful that as a result hauliers will make a conscious effort to improve their adherence to the law to make our roads safer for the public,” said Pryce.
