​Police carries out random checks on commercial vechicles

Officers from the Road Policing Unit were at the Sundial roundabout this week checking on the road-worthiness of commercial vehicles.

The vehicles were waved to the side of the road where drivers’ documents were checked, as well as the vehicles' lights, indicators, tyres, the security of the load, even any sharp edges which could hurt someone.

This follows a couple of cases of major oil-spills from local lorries recently.

The police says a few years ago, many of the commercial vehicles coming in from Spain were not roadworthy, but the Spanish authorities are much stricter on these matters these days.
