A vehicle stopped by police in Snainton was found to be twice the permitted weight.

Officers from North Yorkshire's Road Policing Group stopped the flatbad truck yesterday at Snainton after noticing that it appeared to be a bit heavy. Having escorted it to a weighbridge, they found that the towing vehicle was a staggering 3560kg or 101% overweight!

The total combination (vehicle & trailer) was 2840kg (40%) overweight. Police say that in addition to the vehicle being overweight an important safety feature, a secondary coupling, was not fitted.

The vehicle was prohibited from being driven until the load was removed. The driver & company will be reported to court and could receive a significant fine if convicted.
