SIX lorry drivers have been fined a total £2,298 for breaching road weight restrictions.

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.

Walter Gascoyne, 27, of Bridge View, Shefford, Bedfordshire, admitted driving a heavy goods vehicle weighing up to 44 tonnes through a 7.5 tonne restriction in Watlington on October 3. He was fined £266.

Neil Williams, 42, of Lime Tree Close, Luton, was found guilty in his absence after not responding to a court summons and fined £400 for breaching the same restriction on January 29 this year.

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.

Miroslaw Arciszewski, 35, of Winchester Gardens, Luton, failed to respond to a summons and was found guilty in his absence of breaching the three-tonne restriction at Shabbington Bridge, near Thame, on February 26 this year in a vehicle weighing up to 18 tonnes. He was fined £400.
