ALTip Ltd Start A Fleet Install Of Camera’s & TankGuard

ALTip is a Derbyshire haulage business operating from Swadlincote, servicing the quarry industry in the area to destinations near and far. ALTip is a story which has developed over a period spanning nearly 5 years.

ALTip has made a considerable investment in making the truck fleet as safe as possible with the currently available technology. Installing 360 Deg Cameras and fuel theft prevention alarms is that start of a continued investment to meet the Silver FORS accreditation.

What is FORS For?
The aim of FORS is simple. One over-arching scheme that encompasses all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. FORS is a voluntary scheme that helps improve operators’ performance in each of these areas.
For vehicle operators, it offers peace of mind that they are meeting their legislative requirements, as well as helping to increase efficiency, reduce costs and win work.
FORS provides a quality and performance benchmark for van, lorry, mini-bus, coach and bus operators and allows access to a range of exclusive accreditation benefits.
Accreditation also provides us with the tools to become safer, greener and more efficient. It is an excellent way to prove to our existing and potential customers our credentials as a high performing operator who adheres to high quality standards.
aide automotive can supply and install multiple camera and safety products for all commercial vehicles.

Lorry emissions checks to start at the roadside

October 19th, 2017 Comments off

Truck Emission Testing DVSA

From August 2017, roadside checks of lorries carried out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will include an emissions check.

The DVSA are set to target lorry drivers and operators who try to cheat vehicle emissions. The new checks will target those who break the law and will help to improve air quality.

In May 2017, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs published a draft plan to improve air quality by reducing nitrogen dioxide levels in the UK.

This included looking at ways to reduce emissions produced by vehicles, including those used commercially. A final plan will be published by 31 July.

Fraudulent emissions readings

The DVSA’s enforcement staff, and their European counterparts, have found evidence that drivers and operators use emissions cheat devices to cut the cost of operating.

These include:

Using devices designed to stop emissions control systems from working
Removing the diesel particulate filter or trap

Using cheap, fake emission reduction devices or diesel exhaust fluid

Using illegal engine modifications which result in excessive emissions
Removing or bypassing the exhaust gas recirculation valve

Taking action against emission cheats

DVSA enforcement officers will give the driver and operator 10 days to fix the emissions system if they find a vehicle with tampered emissions readings. If the emissions system isn’t fixed within 10 days, DVSA will issue a fine and stop the vehicle being used on the road.

DVSA enforcement staff can insist that a vehicle be taken off the road immediately if they find a driver or operator is repeatedly offending.

Working with the EU

DVSA will investigate all Great Britain operators cheating emissions and pass the findings to the Traffic Commissioners for Great Britain, who have the power to remove operator licences.

DVSA will also continue to work with counterpart agencies across Europe, and further afield, to make sure that all offences committed by non-Great Britain hauliers are dealt with locally.

DVSA Chief Executive, Gareth Llewellyn, said: DVSA’s priority is to protect you from unsafe drivers and vehicles. We are committed to taking dangerous vehicles off Britain’s roads and this new initiative to target emissions fraud is a key part of that. Anyone who flouts the law is putting other road users, and the quality of our air, at risk. We won’t hesitate to take these drivers, operators and vehicles off our roads.”

Even though the roadside checks will be to search out the cheat devices, the operators who omit emissions over the required standards could be penalised.

Checking commercial vehicle emissions within inspection intervals will confirm no emission regularities on the roadside.
