Conditional Discharge for Drivers’ Hours Offences
This driver, driving a 7.5 tonne vehicle under grandfather rights, had an imperfect knowledge of his driver’s hours obligations. He was unlucky enough to find himself the subject of both a CPS prosecution in London and a DVSA prosecution in the Midlands which proved impossible to join together.
Represented by Smith Bowyer Clarke advocates he pleaded guilty to 20 separate offences, 10 in London and 10 in the Midlands. He was conditionally discharged on all counts with only prosecution costs and the victim surcharge to pay.
