Vehicle Examination/Expert Witness
Total Fleet Management are pleased to offer an independent vehicle examination service, be it following
- a collision
- a component failure
- wheel loss
- a vehicle related prosecution
or simply as a quality control on your maintenance and regular safety inspection provider.
Vehicle based prosecutions can arise from a number of areas including allegations of:
- Unroadworthy Vehicle
- Dangerous Condition
- Unsafe/Shed Load
- Unsafe Carriage of Passengers
Defence of the allegation or indeed mitigation could require a vehicle examination, preparation of a technical report and expert evidence at the Court Hearing.
Total Fleet Management can provide this.
How reliable is your maintenance provider?
The DVSA Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness states:
Section 6 – Monitoring
Continuous reviewing and monitoring of the quality of the systems in place is essential to ensure that they are sufficiently comprehensive to do the job.
One method of monitoring is to invite a technically competent third party periodically to re-inspect or undertake a safety inspection irrespective of whether inspections are done in-house or are contracted out.
If such independent quality control would give you peace of mind, let Total Fleet Management assist.
Total Fleet Management can also assist in investigating other allegations such as
- Driving without Due Care and Attention
- Dangerous Driving
- Tachograph Offences
- Drivers’ Hours Offences
