Scotland’s Traffic Commissioner has disqualified the owner of a Insch haulage business for breaching safety.
The commissioner found that Ronald Wink deliberately undermined road safety measures put in place to protect the public from fatigued drivers.
Mr Wink also lost his licence to operate heavy goods vehicles and has been disqualified from professional driving licence for 12 months.
“Most would not even trouble themselves to find out how it could be done let alone take possession of or craft devices.
“Very few drivers cross the line; when an operator driver crosses the line with no pressure except the pressure of his own decisions and attitude then there cannot be deflection to any other party or cause.”
During the hearing, Mr Wink claimed that he used the device to avoid problems he was encountering with parking.
All of the Traffic Commissioner’s orders came into effect at on Monday, December 26, 2016.
