FTA supports efforts to clamp down on emissions cheat devices

The UK’s Freight Transport Association (FTA) has expressed its support for recent action taken by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to clamp down on “emissions cheat devices”.

At the quarterly meeting of FTA members’ representatives in London yesterday (8 May 2018), the FTA’s UK Road Freight Council issued the following statement: “DVSA and the Traffic Commissioners are acting in a responsible and proportionate way on behalf of the sector to clamp down on those whose illegal actions are bringing the logistics industry into disrepute.

“Freight operators are one of the most highly regulated businesses in the world, and the actions of a very small minority are causing the Traffic Commissioners to question the repute of all operator licence holders, which cannot be allowed to continue.

“The logistics industry has made significant investment in the development of cleaner vehicles, including diesel, to reach the point that the Euro VI standard is now contributing to the improvement of air quality across the country. Wilful defiance and evasion of these standards have no place in the modern logistics industry.”
