Dear Vehicle and Operator Services Agency,

I should like to request the following information relating to VOSA spot checks on HGV vehicles between the dates 1/4/2008 and 31/3/2013.

The specific questions are:
1. How many HGV vehicles were spot-checked (pulled over without warning) in the above period
2. How many drivers had exceeded their permitted driving hours by more than 15 minutes?

It would be helpful if you were to provide any brief notes which might be necessary to understand the context of the information provided, although I recognise that you are not obliged to do this. If you are not the appropriate authority for this request, or for part of it, please let me know as soon as is convenient.

If the information requested contains sections of confidential information, please blank out or remove these sections, and mark clearly that they have been removed.

Thank you for your help.

Regards

Michael
