Are you are being investigated or have been prosecuted for breaches of drivers’ hours regulations, tachograph offences or creating false records, it is vital that you seek legal advice from a specialist road transport lawyer without delay.
EA Law - East Anglian Chambers have a long history of expertly defending tachograph/drivers’ hours cases.
We can represent both operators and drivers in the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court; and before the Traffic Commissioner. Failing to comply with drivers’ hours regulations can result in prosecution for a number of offences, for which the penalties can be severe. Fines of up to £5,000 are common.
