Senior TC Bell reveals Commercial Motor Live killer question for Vosa chief

  • 20 September 2012
  • By Laura Hailstone

The senior traffic commissioner (TC) has revealed she will be asking Vosa boss Alastair Peoples what the agency intends to do about serially non-compliant operators during her Commercial Motor Live conference session in a fortnight’s time.

Beverley Bell and Peoples will both be taking part in the ‘Enforcement issues and responsibilities’ seminar on the second day (4 October) of Commercial Motor Live, taking place at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedford.

“I want to know what plans VOSA has to enforce against the serially and seriously non-compliant operators, so that TCs can then regulate them for the benefit of road safety, fair competition and the compliant industry,” Bell told CM.

TC for the Eastern area, Richard Turfitt, will be taking part in the same seminar on day one (3 October). Bell says operators should book a place at either session as it will be an opportunity to “see what is currently on the TCs’ agenda and to hear direct from them”.

“Not only does it give an opportunity to see TCs in a relatively informal setting, but it also enables TCs to hear direct about the issues facing industry, so that we can better understand these issues and can make more informed decisions when regulating,” added Bell.

During the 45-minute seminar, which counts towards CILT-approved CPD points, the TCs will discuss Driver CPC training, the accreditation of maintenance contractors, the importance and significance of the role of the transport manager and the professionalisation of an industry that does “not always have the reputation and image that it deserves”.

“These topics are currently the subject of discussion in industry, so as regulators, TCs’ are keen to influence and lead the debate, especially with an audience that is directly affected by the issues,” said Bell.
