§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
Monthly statistics are not available. The Department expects to weigh some 8,800 foreign vehicles during the current financial year. This represents nearly 3 per cent of the incoming foreign vehicle movements. Many vehicles are regular visitors,24W which increases the probability of being weighed at some time during the year. About 24 per cent. of the vehicles weighed are found to be overloaded. Checking is targeted on vehicles likely to be overweight.
