Cheshire Police is taking part in a national week of action making sure commercial hauliers are following saftety laws.
Officers will be patrolling the Cheshire motorway network ensuring those carrying hazardous goods are fully co-operating with legislation which permits them to do so.
The week of action in Cheshire is supported by the North West Motorway Police Group and will run between Monday 20 February and Sunday 26 February.
Officers will be out and about ensuring that HGVs and lorries are complying with the relevant Construction and Use legislation and also the relevant European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road. This is the legislation that allows dangerous goods to be transported and its requirements.
PC Martyn Campbell, of the Constabulary’s commercial vehicle unit, said: “We’ll be targeting commercial vehicles which could be dangerously transporting hazardous materials on our roads. Our week of action will help to drive home the message that not complying with legislation is potentially dangerous to other road users and completely unacceptable.”
