Financial Standing Issues Resolved and Repute as Transport Manager Remains Intact at Traffic Commissioner’s Public Inquiry
An operator, represented by Barrister Helen Newbold, was called into a Public Inquiry on two counts.
The primary concern of the Traffic Commissioner was that the Operator’s evidence of financial standing was obtained from a number of difference sources. As a result, it was difficult to demonstrate that the required average financial amount was constantly available over the necessary 3 months. Helen Newbold advised the Operator as to the best practice approach to financial standing prior to the Public Inquiry and was able to demonstrate to the Deputy Traffic Commissioner that the operator had complied. An undertaking was proposed, and accepted, to demonstrate that this would remain the position going forward.
In respect of the secondary concern regarding his position as transport manager, for himself and two other operators; Helen Newbold advised the Operator as to his roles and responsibilities so that the Deputy Traffic Commissioner could be satisfied that he was in continuous and effective control.
A warning was issued in respect of the financial position, but no regulatory action was taken and the operator’s repute as a transport manager remained untarnished.
