Police in HGV catch string of drivers breaking the law
Police used an unmarked HGV to help them catch drivers breaking the law on Leicestershire’s roads on Monday. An HGV driver was fined GBP200 and could have six points added to his licence after after he was spotted using his mobile phone at the wheel. Another man in an HGV was pulled over and reported after running two red lights in quick succession in front of one of Leicestershire Police’s unmarked vehicles.
Officers caught an HGV driver, who was not wearing his seat belt, steering with his arms while holding a mobile phone in both his hands and texting. Another HGV driver faces a fine of up to GBP100 after also being spotted without a seat belt on.

A motorist driving a vehicle carrying children who were not restrained correctly faces court after being pulled over for speeding. Meanwhile, one HGV driver, spotted with his knee up by the side of his window, was pulled over for not being in proper control of his vehicle.
And a van pulled over for potentially being overweight was impounded after its driver was found to have no insurance.
The unmarked HGV was loaned to the Safer Roads Team of Leicestershire Police by Highways England.
