If you get as hacked off as we do when you hear someone blame trucks for the congestion we all suffer from, take heart: new figures from the DfT prove it simply isn’t true.
Efforts to wean us all off petroleum based transport fuels appear to be failing miserably, judging by the latest oil product delivery figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
A new document from the DfT this week confirms that government revenues from fuel duty have tripled since 1987 – yes, that’s right, tripled.
Vosa is still refusing to tell The Hub why an authorised testing facility (ATF) operator brought a claim of contractual breach against it in respect of provision of testing staff.
Operators of authorised testing facilities (AFTs) will be delighted to hear that Vosa has made savings of nearly £29m on refurbishing its own vehicle testing stations since the testing transformation process began.
Given the tragic death of another cyclist today, we spoke to Christopher Snelling, head of urban logistics policy at the FTA, to get his view on the road safety debate.
Every vehicle operator’s favourite government agency (we speak of none other than Vosa, of course) is proving even harder than usual to get information out of lately.
