Fraudsters are proving an obstacle to attempts to reduce lorry emissions in the UK, according to the DVSA, cited in this piece from Logistics Manager. The association claims one in 12.7 vehicles have been fitted with emission-fraud devices – the most common of which is known as an emulator. As a result of the findings, from roadside checks, the vehicles of more than 100 operators are to be checked. Of those found with the devices so far, more than half were registered in the UK. Guilty parties are given 10 days to remove the device. Failure to comply will see their vehicle taken off the road and could see the loss of their licence.
