As a leading provider of HGV training in Derbyshire, the HGV Training Centre knows there are certain roads off-limits to heavy goods vehicles travelling in and around the town of Brethby. But apparently, a small group of rogue drivers continue to defy restrictions by using roads they are prohibited from. Local residents aim to change that.

The Burton Mail reported on February 10 about a group of residents who have joined forces with the Derbyshire Police and the County Council to bring an end to the illegal use of certain local roads. Residents are being asked to mark down information on any vehicle in violation and report that vehicle to the police or the council’s trading standards agency.

According to the County Council, both environmental and weight restrictions are in place to protect the local region. Weight restrictions limit the wear and tear on local roads and bridges, while environmental restrictions exist to protect both property owners and drivers. Drivers who disregard the restrictions are endangering themselves, local residents, roadways, and the environment.

The Burton Mail says officials have two means of addressing violators. The first is to issue a first-time warning to deter drivers from repeat offenses. Subsequent multiple offenses can result in an official report and court appearance for the driver in question.

HGV drivers operating in and around Brethby are urged to become familiar with the weight and environmental restrictions and stay off those roads they are prohibited from using. Doing so not only protects everyone involved, it also helps the drivers maintain their own reputations and those of their employers.
