Transport: Heavy Goods Vehicles
House of Lords
Lord Roberts of Llandudno (Liberal Democrat)
To ask Her Majesty's Government how many of the prohibitions by Vehicle and Operator Services Agency examiners issued to drivers of heavy goods vehicles on the A55 in North Wales since European Union Regulations 1072/2009 and 1073/2009 came into effect have been issued to the same hauliers and drivers on more than one occasion.
Earl Attlee (Whip, House of Lords; Conservative)
The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency operates a targeted enforcement system called operator compliance risk score (OCRS), which uses historical evidence from previous encounters to ensure that high risk operators are inspected more frequently than those considered to be compliant.
