star this property answer text <p>In 2017, an estimated 250 people were killed in accidents where at least one driver or rider was above the drink-drive limit. Drink driving is involved in around 5% of reported road casualties and 14% of fatalities.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to tackling drivers under the influence of alcohol and all dangerous drivers and is determined that all such drivers are caught and punished. We employ a combined approach of tough penalties and rigorous enforcement along with our highly respected and effective THINK! campaigns to reinforce the social unacceptability of drink driving, and to remind people of the serious ramifications that drinking and driving can have on themselves and others.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has also taken some important steps to tighten drink driving legislation. We have made it a requirement for high risk offenders to undertake medical tests before they are allowed to drive again, and we have also made sure that drivers over the breath limit cannot escape a conviction by demanding a further blood or urine test.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>If the vehicle owner ignores their penalty notices there is a process of escalation in place that results in increased charges. Initially this can be registered as a County Court debt. Further failure to pay the charge can lead to the County Court issuing a warrant to Civil Enforcement Agents (bailiffs). This will mean added charges and Civil Enforcement Agents (bailiffs) taking goods from the vehicle owners home to settle the debt.</p><p> </p> more like this

The DVSA does conduct roadside mechanical spot checks on lorries, which include a check for emissions control equipment (cheat devices). Over the last three years the DVSA has carried out the following roadside mechanical spot checks on lorries:<br></p><p>2016/2017 – 110,570</p><p>2017/2018 – 108,050</p><p>2018/2019 – 95,280</p><p> </p><p>The number of checks has reduced year-on-year because the DVSA now carries out targeted enforcement of seriously and serially non-compliant vehicles. Targeted enforcement allows compliant operators to conduct their business without expecting their vehicles to be subject to random checks.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
