Truck fine


A County Wexford plant hirer and haulier has been fined 3,000 euros for running a truck 5 tonnes overweight. Jackie Cadogan Plant Hire was fined for having a truck registering 37.06 tonnes at a weighbridge. The court was told that the truckload of soil had become 'considerably heavier' due to rain.
