Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Charles Poulter Ltd., of London, El, pleaded guilty at Wallington, Surrey, magistrates' court on Monday to two charges of overloading and was lined a total of £200.

Mr. Donald Johnson, a Metropolitan traffic examiner, said one of Poulter's vehicles was stopped at Croydon on November 17. 1969 and its gross weight and rear axle weight checked. Both weights exceeded those specified on the vehicle's plate, the former by over 3 tons and the latter by nearly 2 tons.

Mr. Johnson said the offence was later pointed out to Mr. Solly Davis, a director, who, after caution, made no reply.

In mitigation, the Company wrote to the court claiming that the vehicle's load—paper from the Thames Board Mill at Purfleet— had been put on the wrong lorry.

Four previous overloading convictions, dating from October 1965, were taken into consideration by the court.
