Proactive Approach Regarding Maintenance Records Keeps Operator’s Licence
This operator, represented by barrister Helen Newbold, was called in by the Traffic Commissioner to a Public Inquiry over concerns about the maintenance of his vehicles.
Helen Newbold was able to demonstrate that the operator was largely maintaining his fleet correctly however his lack of engagement in record keeping prevented him from demonstrating this.
Further issues, arising from the correct use of newly acquired digital tachograph and vehicle unit downloader, were discussed and remedial action was recommended.
Credit was given by the Traffic Commissioner due to the fact that the Operator had sought professional assistance, from a Transport Consultant, to review and fix his systems in order that he might be compliant in the future.
