Driver Avoids Suspension for Tachograph Offences
An HGV driver, represented by SBC, had been called to a Driver Conduct Hearing for tachograph offences. At the roadside, the DVSA had found evidence of a second driver card in use in potentially suspicious circumstances.
SBC were able to demonstrate to the Traffic Commissioner that the driver had not used another person’s tachograph card. After hearing evidence from the driver and legal submissions, the Traffic Commissioner decided that a licence suspension could be avoided. A formal warning was issued and no further action was taken.
