A COUNTY Londonderry haulier has been fined a total of £600 for failing to produce tachograph charts.
In a Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) case, Londonderry Magistrates' Court heard how officers from the organisation carried out an in-depth investigation into James A McHugh, based in Carnmoney Road, Eglinton. It was asked to produce tachograph charts for six of its vehicles, but failed to do so and
was prosecuted under the Passenger and Goods Vehicle (Recording Equipment) Regulations (NI) 1996.
The company was fined £100 for each of six counts of failing to produce tachographs, and was ordered to pay court costs and an offenders levy.
The authorities in Northern Ireland are continuing to crack down on hauliers that flout drivers' hours rules.
