The UK authorities (DVSA) intend to impound the vehicles of operators who continue to breach EC Regulations 1072/2009 and 106/1992.

Should a vehicle be impounded, a notification will be sent to the operator and the registered owner of the goods vehicle concerned. The impounding will be publicised in the London Gazette, which is available online.

From the receipt of the notification of impounding, the operator will have 21 days to appeal to the Traffic Commissioner for the area where the impounding took place.

Should such a vehicle be being used on a finance agreement, with a lease agreement or on hire, i.e. it is not owned by the operator, then, the operating company will have no right of appeal against the impounding.

The DVSA is usually unaware of the finance agreements, lease agreements or hire contracts in place when a vehicle is impounded. It is, therefore, imperative that the vehicle’s operator should notify the company that has a financial interest in the vehicle at the earliest opportunity. This will allow it to appeal to the Traffic Commissioner in a timely manner.

The contact details of the Traffic Commissioner concerned are included in the impounding announcement in the London Gazette and in the correspondence sent to the vehicle operator following the impounding. Legal representation at the appeal hearing will be at the request of the company lodging the appeal.

Attacks in Paris: reintroduction of border controls
Following the attacks in Paris last Friday evening, which killed at least 129 people, border police and Customs are now checking all vehicles crossing the Belgian border. Traffic is restricted to one lane only.
Systematic controls are being conducted on the four highways linking France to Belgium: A22 at Rekkem, A27 at Baisieux, A2 at Thivencelles and A16 at Bray-Dunes.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has announced an extraordinary meeting of the EU Council on Friday 20 November 2015 in order to discuss, among other things, the “reinforcement of controls at external borders”.
