DVSA to tighten harvest enforcement of ag trailer road rules
Date of alert:
Saturday, 2 July 2022
Harvest is the season when machines and staff are operating at maximum capacity, and whether bringing in cereals, root crops, forage or straw, it is important not to cut corners when it comes to haulage from field to farm yard.
Recent changes to the enforcement approach of DVSA mean that load security should be a top priority to avoid unnecessary downtime at the roadside with a trailer under review.
This year, officers may have a slightly different view how agricultural (and other) loads may be assessed on the road, and that means bulk loads will be under the spotlight during the summer.
