In Great Britain, from Monday 5 March onwards, a new penalty regime is in force for violations of driving and rest times regulations.
So far, the Police was only allowed to fine for violations committed on the day of the check.
Now the Police can go back to 28 days.
For each offense committed, drivers can get fines between 300 and 1,500 British pounds. Foreign drivers must pay the imposed fine immediately. If they are unable to do so, the vehicle may be seized until the amount of the fine has been paid. In the U.K. some 6,300 fines were imposed for violations of driving and rest times between April 2015 and March 2016. The Police also closely monitors
the parking of trucks on emergency lanes and other locations that are not intended to park trucks.
