Operator with Insufficient Management Oversight and “S” Marked Prohibitions Keeps Licence at Traffic Commissioner’s Public Inquiry

This operator, represented at Public Inquiry by barrister Harry Bowyer,  was a UK Company with European directors. One of their trucks was stopped and given an “S” marked prohibition. As a result of the subsequent DVSA investigation it became apparent that the European directors had not been keeping sufficient oversight of the business and had over delegated responsibility to the Transport Manager. The directors were genuinely horrified that they had dropped the ball and, under the guidance of SBC, took immediate steps to take responsibility. So complete were these steps that when the case came to Public Inquiry the Traffic Commissioner dealt with the case by way of a formal warning and undertakings.
