Waste Operator Keeps Licence following Tachograph Offences
A large waste operator was called to Public Inquiry by the Traffic Commissioner. A roadside stop by the DVSA had revealed a large number of tachograph offences committed by drivers of the business. Further investigations by the DVSA identified a lack of proper tachograph analysis systems prior to the incident.
The advocate with the assistance of an independent tachograph consultant, was able to act fast to assist the operator to ensure proper systems were in place prior to the Public Inquiry. At the hearing the advocate was able to detail the extensive steps taken by the operator since the roadside stop, and the present attitude of cooperation and compliance that prevailed at the business.
After hearing evidence and legal submissions, the Traffic Commissioner imposed a temporary curtailment of two vehicles, and accepted undertakings for further training to be carried out. This was a positive outcome, and one that allowed the business and the licence to continue into the future.
