Safety Alert – Vehicle Compliance Checks

In September 2020, Highways England (HE) commenced a programme of compliance checks on vehicles and drivers working on schemes across the country. Each compliance check was run in collaboration with principal contractors and the vehicle and driver checks were conducted by Warwickshire Police by stopping vehicles for examination at the scheme compound.

HE are extremely concerned that 61 vehicles (35%) checked were found to be non-compliant in some way. A broad range of issues were recorded, but there were clear trends with some issues being found repeatedly. Police were requested to apply a ‘light touch’ in issuing penalties but still issued several penalty notices and prohibitions to the most serious issues.
