Public Inquiry – Operator Given Last Chance to Achieve Regulatory Compliance
The applicant company, represented by Martin Smith, had applied for a Standard National Operator’s Licence in the West Midlands Traffic Area where it had been using an unauthorised operating centre for some time. After the grant of an interim licence the Transport Manager resigned and in a letter to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner he made reference to “the illegal running of vehicles”.
The Traffic Commissioner was concerned that a number of untaxed vehicles had been operated by the haulier. The director with specific responsibility accepted fault and resigned. The Traffic Commissioner accepted an undertaking that the director would not be re-employed by the company in any capacity whatsoever and gave the company a final chance to achieve full regulatory compliance, curtailing its fleet of vehicles for a period of two weeks by way of regulatory action.
