Police find vehicle failings

Ross Crawford 10th Aug, 2019

WEST Mercia Police have taken part in a national road safety campaign aimed at cracking down on drivers and operators of goods vehicles that are not following the correct safety guidance.

The campaign was co-ordinated across the UK by the National Police Chiefs Council with West Mercia Police out identifying unsafe vehicles.

Offences found included illegal window tints, illegal registration plates, expired driving licence, cracked windscreens, lighting defects, insecure trailer loads and overweight vehicles (including those carrying livestock).

One of the most dangerous offences detected was a state-of-the-art tractor towing more than 16 tonnes of grass seed.

When tested three out of four of the brakes on the trailer unit were not working.
