Transport: Heavy Goods Vehicles

Volume 712: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether recent changes in penalties for road traffic offences have led to a reduction in the number of heavy goods vehicles breaking the law on the A55 in North Wales. [HL5109]

The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency introduced graduated fixed penalty deposits on 29 May 2009. It is still too early to form accurate statistical analysis on enforcement levels as a result of these changes.
