During road safety week the DVSA published a list of operators committing drivers’ hours offences in the UK. The list includes thousands of operators based in the UK and in other European countries. 1429 offenders were listed from Great Britain and included many well-known hauliers.
The DVSA stated that the data only showed offences detected at the roadside and did not include offences found at site visits or other desk-based investigations.
Reaction to the list has been mixed with one haulier claiming the information to be incorrect with their OCRS being green, see Motor Transport.
