Truck driver reported for blocking police station to collect takeaway
A truck driver has been reported for several offences, after blocking a police station while collecting his takeaway.
The incident happened on Saturday, December 5, in Haverhill.
The Norfolk & Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team assisted Haverhill police officers after discovering a man had removed his driver card and tacho fuse - known as ‘fuse-pulling’.
He had also parked in front of the police station in High Street while stopping to collect a takeaway.
Removing the card and fuse interrupted his daily rest period – breaking the rules about the strict records required to ensure drivers take their time away from the wheel.
