No Action Taken Against Operator or Transport Manager at Traffic Commissioner’s Public Inquiry
Martin Smith represented a haulage Operator at a Public Inquiry. The Operator had been carrying out in-house maintenance and a DVSA maintenance investigation had concluded that the arrangements were unsatisfactory. The Operator’s first time MOT pass rate was very low. The Traffic Commissioner also had concerns with regard to the competence of the Nominated Transport Manager and that the Operator might not have been of the appropriate financial standing.
At the conclusion of the hearing the Traffic Commissioner granted applications to increase the number of trailers on each of the Operator’s three licences and decided to take no regulatory action against the operator or transport manager. The Traffic Commissioner accepted undertakings relating to the provision of financial evidence and an audit report in due course.
