Vehicle and trailer with ‘various defects’ banned from the road by Falmouth Police

Police have banned a driver from using his vehicle and trailer on the road after “various flaws” were discovered. Falmouth officers also said the vehicle posed a danger to other drivers on the road as it had an “unsecured” load.

In a tweet shared on the official Devon and Cornwall Roads Police Team Twitter account, a spokesperson said the driver was promptly reported. The driver was also banned from using the vehicle until he passed a new MOT.

The full tweet reads: “This vehicle and its trailer had various defects rendering it #Unsafe for use on the road, including its insecure charging.

“For #RoadSafety it was #Prohibited to be used on a road until a new #MOT was enacted. Driver reported. @VisionZeroSW #NoExcuse #Fatal5 #Falmouth.”

It is illegal under the Road Traffic Act 1988 to operate a vehicle or trailer on a road if it Iinvolves a danger of injury to any person. This means that any time the placement, weight or distribution of a load could cause injury or loss of control to the driver, it is illegal.

The offense can be committed both by the driver and by a company that authorizes it.
