Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Monday heard the cases, which were prosecuted by Oxfordshire County Council’s Trading Standards Team.

Three drivers were spotted by members of the public and reported to the council, while the other three were seen by Trading Standards officers on patrol.

Sean Reeder, 35, of Down Barns Road, Ruislip, pleaded guilty to breaching seven weight restrictions during a journey which took him from the M40 at Thame to an address in Didcot and back via Long Wittenham and Clifton Hampden on September 30 last year. He was fined £700.

Michael Donson, 44, of Gervase Avenue, Sheffield, and Stephen Williams, 46, of Kinross Crescent, Luton, were each fined £266 after admitting driving vehicles weighing up to 18 tonnes each through the same restriction on 26 February and 11 February respectively.
