Police stop more than 100 goods vehicles with drivers committing offences in just 10 days
Humberside Police have stopped 118 Heavy and Light Goods Vehicles committing 147 offences in 10 days. Operation Tramline saw Humberside Police use an unmarked Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) to identify drivers committing a number of offences on our roads. Of the 147 offences, police seized two Heavy or Light Goods Vehicles and a further 131 were issued with Traffic Offence Reports.
Across the operation, which ran from April 5 to April 15 2021, offences included driving without a seatbelt, driving while using a mobile phone and vehicles that were faulty in construction or use. Get the top GrimsbyLive stories straight to your inbox, click here
Whilst these were the main offences committed, others included insecure loads, using the prohibited outside lane, driving without insurance and driving without due care and attention. During the operation, the unmarked HGV vehicle would identify and record the offending driver who would then be dealt with by an accompanying marked vehicle.
Nationally, the operation has now caught over 4000 drivers committing a multitude of offences. Many of these have been what is known as the ‘Fatal Four’.
