Officers crack down on vehicle defects during M6 operation

Bald tyres and unsafe, overweight loads are amongst the offences discovered by officers cracking down on the condition of vehicles on Staffordshire's motorways.

“We spoke to a number of drivers and thoroughly checked vehicles during the operation. Though vehicle defects may seem minor to some – they can cost a life if the vehicle needed to stop drastically in the event of a near-collision.

“Drivers have a responsibility to make sure their vehicles are safe for the roads and we’ll continue to crack down on any that aren’t.”
