News Year’s enforcement dishonours list

7 Jan 2020

This time of year is a period of reflection for us all as we welcome in the New Year and look back at the past 12 months.

 

Whilst DVSA enforcement officers have seen some horrors on the UK’s roads in 2019, they have all played an active part in removing these dangers from our roads.

 

In the last 12 months we’ve found 38,712 serious defects and traffic offences on our roads. Many of these led to fines, prosecutions, visits to see the Traffic Commissioners and other enforcement action to protect all road users from unsafe vehicles and drivers.

 

The majority of goods vehicles, buses and coaches on our roads are safe.

 

By using all the technology we have at our disposal we are effectively focusing on the non-compliant, helping everyone stay safe on Britain’s roads.

 

Vehicle examiner Gareth Prismick highlights some of the worst offenders for 2019, which reflect the range of offences that he deals with on a regular basis.
