Industry News: RHA calls for tougher sanctions for drivers' hours falsification

Friday 20th January 2017

The RHA has called for sanctions for drivers’ hours falsification to be increased, particularly for non-GB drivers, as drivers’ hours breaches continue to top the DVSA’s list of most commonly-committed offences.

Vehicle enforcement data published by the DVSA this week showed that some 46% of the 3,271 offences detected during checks of both GB- and non-GB registered trucks in the year to March 2016 fell into the drivers’ hours category, and such offences represented 49% of all convictions achieved.
