Nearly 150 fines issued in first week of HGV Road User Levy

  • 11 April 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Nearly 150 fines were handed out to operators that had not paid the HGV Road User Levy in its first week, the Department for Transport (DfT) has revealed.

Between 1 April , when the legislation came into effect, and Tuesday 8 April, almost 72,000 trucks had been registered to use UK roads, a DfT spokesman said.

Around 56,000 levies had been purchased by operators from 50 different countries, he added.

Last week, transport minister Stephen Hammond said the DfT had handed out over £20,000 in fines to operators that had not paid the levy on its first day. The fines were issued to a total of 67 trucks.

The levy was introduced last week for both UK- and foreign-registered HGVs that wish to use UK roads.
