Police operation catches HGV drivers flouting law

A police operation in Warwickshire to stop drivers committing a range of offences caught 56 HGV drivers – 38% - breaking the law.

Officers used a specially adapted lorry ‘supercab’ as part of Operation Tramline to watch drivers during a five-day operation on the M40 - and they stopped 146 vehicles in total.

Vehicles ranged from cars up to HGVs and the police said that out of the 146 they stopped, 56 were commercial vehicles.

In addition, 31 people were stopped for using a mobile phone while driving and 37 were stopped and fined for not wearing a seatbelt.

The penalty for driving while using a mobile phone is six points and a £200 fine.

Sergeant Stafford of the serious collision investigation unit at Warwickshire Police said: “Vehicles travel at high speeds on the motorway network and drivers really need to concentrate on what they’re doing.

“The operation is about keeping people safe on our roads and we are looking for people that could pose serious danger to themselves and other road users.”

Since April 2019, Operation Tramline has detected over 400 offences in the county and the police has stopped drivers it said could have caused death or serious injury to themselves or other road users.
