Representation at court
Many transport offences turn on the definition of the word “user” where there is liability for both the driver of the vehicle and the owner.
Although many of these offences are strict liability ones, it is still worth being professionally represented at court, so that the company’s point of view is put forward to the Bench, who may have little knowledge of operating large goods vehicles, with the aim of keeping the fine as low as possible.
Remember that as convictions have to be notified, there is a knock on effect on the operating licence. For representation at court it is worth seeking advice at the earliest opportunity, for guidance on any interview with prosecuting authorities and to address any deficiencies in your systems which can help with mitigation.
