Stormont Executive press release - Department of the Environment

A Co Londonderry company was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £16 court costs and £15 offender levy at Dungannon Magistrates’ Court on 12 August 2013.

The charges related to an investigation by the Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) into the operation of a vehicle by Bradmount Ltd, of 14 Desertmartin Road, Moneymore.
The company was fined for using a vehicle in a dangerous condition, and the driver of the vehicle, Kevin Crozier, (32), of Finnobar, Coagh, was awarded three penalty points in relation to this offence.

On 11 December 2012, DVA Enforcement Officers directed a two axle goods vehicle over the Department’s weighbridge in Cookstown. On weighing the vehicle it was found to be overweight by 431 kgs (26.1%) on the first axle, 502 kgs (22.3%) on the second axle, and 1,333 kgs (38.1%) on the gross vehicle weight.

As a result the vehicle was prohibited from moving until the load had been adjusted to the legal limits.
