A COUNTY Armagh haulage company was fined £2,500 at Dungannon Magistrates’ Court yesterday for failing to produce tachograph and drivers’ hours records.
Total Freight Ltd of Clontycarty Lane, Tynan, was convicted on one specimen charge of failing to produce tachograph records relating to twenty vehicles.
DVA Enforcement Officers conducted an investigation into the operation of twenty commercial goods vehicles by Total Freight Ltd. During the course of the investigation a number of letters were sent to the company requesting the production of tachograph records for analysis, however no records were produced.
Further to this a company representative failed to be formally interviewed about the matter resulting in the case being prepared for consideration by the Public Prosecution Service.
