The haulage industry and particular professional drivers from other industries are subject to a comprehensive system of rules for drivers, permits, vehicles, working hours, etc. Therefore, it is crucial to contact a lawyer with expertise in cases regarding heavy goods and vehicles.
The rules, and the cases they entail, are vastly different from ordinary cases because the presentation of evidence is often very technical and require an understanding of this. The case law shows that the evidence and interpretative elements critical in these cases are quite different from those in ordinary criminal cases.
