HGV Driver Avoids Custody for Tachograph Offences

An HGV driver approached Smith Bowyer Clarke having being charged with a number of tachograph offences. These included offences of “knowingly making a false record”, carrying a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment.  The HGV driver had admitted the offences to the DVSA at the roadside, but had significant mitigating circumstances in his favour.

At Court the Magistrates were made aware of the surrounding circumstances of the offences. After hearing representations, the Magistrates agreed to deal with these offences by way of fines only.
