24 LGV drivers fined in North Wales Police undercover operation

  • 13 May 2013
  • By Ashleigh Wight

24 LGV drivers were stopped by an undercover truck on Tuesday 7 May in a crackdown on road safety in North Wales.

Officers from North Wales Police’s commercial vehicle unit worked in partnership with staff from Vosa to target drivers who were breaking the law on roads in and around the Deeside area.

Offenders included a driver who was found reading a map and another who was caught taking photographs on his mobile phone while driving. All 24 LGV drivers caught were given fixed penalty notices.

Police used the undercover truck as it allowed them to see inside drivers’ cabs, an area which they cannot usually see whilst on motorbikes or in cars.

Sergeant Tony Gatley said: “Any vehicle not being driven safely can be a lethal weapon and drivers need to be responsible for their actions when they get behind the wheel.”
