M&M Kerr Loses Licence After Speed Limiter Tampering

M&M Kerr, thought to be Scotland’s only haulier of hanging meat, has had its licence revoked after it altered the speed limiters of HGVs and compromised road safety.

The haulier holds an international operator licence authorising 20 lorries and 20 trailers, and was found to have used software purchased for diagnostics to increase the fleet’s speed up to 60mph.

The haulier’s illegal activities only came to light when one of its trucks was involved in an accident and the DVSA found that the speed limiter had been adjusted.

There will be a full update in the next issue of Transport News.
