Roadside Fine Levels Soar

Roadside penalties for haulage offences are to rise by around 50%, ministers recently announced. The new rates are £50 (up from £30), £100 (£60), £200 (£120) and £300 (£200).

The new £300 fine will apply to the new offence of failing comply with the HGV levy when it starts next spring
The increases in graduated fixed penalties highlight the need for a robust company policy on fixed penalties.
It is advised that drivers should be instructed to report immediately of any penalty notice (as with any roadside encounter with enforcement authorities); and agree any payment before it is made, as there will quite likely be an implication for the company's OCRS score.
