FTA welcomes more enforcement

Published to the CV Show website on

The Freight Transport Association says it welcomes plans to extend the stopping powers of enforcement officers into Scotland and Northern Ireland.  The move will effectively give enforcement officers will have the same powers across the UK.  "FTA members support the move to allow Vosa and DVA, with their specialist knowledge and equipment, to focus on issues of vehicle roadworthiness and road safety," said James Firth, head of road freight and enforcement policy at the FTA.  "It is simply a better use of time and resources, with the added benefit of freeing-up police time."
