Northern Ireland compliance levels improve

  • 04 June 2014
  • By Robin Meczes

Compliance levels in Northern Ireland have continued to improve, according to the Driver Vehicle Agency (DVA).

According to the agency’s latest survey, 640 goods vehicles over 3.5-tonne GVW were examined in random roadside checks in NI in 2013/14 with 20% (128) issued with a prosecution, prohibition or fixed penalty notice as a result of a roadworthiness defect or traffic offence.

This compares favourably with previous years, particularly with the peak of 50.8% in 2007 and 2011’s 31.2% non-compliance rate.

A DVA spokesperson said: “There has been a decreasing trend in non-compliance in the goods vehicle sector, however levels of compliance are still lower than what is acceptable across all transport sectors.”
