Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

tilAn Essex haulier whose drivers committed nearly 70 tachograph, drivers hours and maintenance offences has had its 0-licence revoked by South-Eastern and Metropolitan Traffic Commissioner Brigadier Michael Turner.

Following lengthy deliberations, Turner decided that Essex-based JCW International Freight was no longer of good repute or sound financial standing.

The company's three directors also received bans from holding a licence: Peter Wisdon for two years; Mark Wisdon for one year; and Joseph Wisdon for six months.

The charges, heard two weeks earlier at the public inquiry in Eastbourne, had been brought after a Vehicle Inspectorate check at JCW's depot on the Thunderer Road Industrial Estate last July (CM 15-21 Feb).

Since the VI checks, the company, which has appealed, bought new vehicles and installed stricter tachograph and driver monitoring measures in an effort to clean up its act.
