Police patrolling Denbighshire’s roads have warned van and lorry drivers they could be prosecuted if they don’t follow safety guidelines.
It follows an operation on the A525 weighbridge near St Asaph yesterday, where ten vehicles were stopped by officers from both North Wales Police and the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency).
All the vehicles were within their weight limits – but one driver was warned about the number of hours he was driving and another was advised about an insecure load.
Sergeant Tony Gatley from the Roads Policing Unit said: ”It was pleasing to see that all vehicles that were stopped were within the weight limits however it is still disappointing that some professional drivers are not fully complying with their obligations in relations to hours worked and loading their vehicles safely. We will continue to take action against drivers who commit offences on our roads.”
