Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Hook-based Rawlings Transport said it will remain in the area despite Tesco seeking planning permission from Hart District Council to build on its site, if the supermarkets proposed purchase goes ahead. Director Tracy Rapley said the haulier, authorised to run 53 vehicles and 38 trailers from the site, is hoping to relocate to another site in the area if the sale goes ahead and planning permission is granted. It has not yet got a location in mind, added Rapley. A decision on the application is expected to be made before 14 April.

• Police intend to prosecute drivers that breach a 7.5tonne truck weight limit in Belton, near Doncaster, after receiving complaints about drivers ignoring the restriction. More than 175 vehicles breached the weight limit on Westgate Road in December. Humberside Police force has written to local businesses to ask them to comply with the restriction or face prosecution. The police will be working with the DVSA (formerly Vosa and the DSA) to enforce the restriction, and has now installed cameras on the route to record vehicle registration, type of vehicle and weight.

• International development charity Transaid raised more than £243,000 through fundrasing last year. The total was reached after members of the transport industry took part in a number of events, including a trek up Mount Snowdon, a cycle ride from London to Amsterdam and a cycle challenge across Uganda. The money will keep the charity's African projects, which are designed to improve standards of road safety, running.
