At the heart of most operators’ systems to ensure regulatory compliance are the arrangements relating to the management of the hours of work that their drivers do and the way in which those duties are (or sometimes are not) recorded.
Tachograph infringements make up a very significant proportion of all road transport prosecutions every year. Protecting yourself against the consequences of regulatory infringement, especially prosecution and/or call up to Public Inquiry should be high on any operator’s list of priorities.
Pellys Transport and Regulatory Law regularly receive instructions to act for operators who face prosecution for offences to which they have a full defence or which they genuinely did not realise that they were committing.
