The federal and local police services in the province of Antwerp will start a new control action “heavy transport” next week. It is already the implementation action this year, because the number of acts remains large.
The police will carry out targeted checks on freight transport across the province from October 11 to 29. “The certainly permanent situation of this action is an increase in road safety, now that it is darker longer and it often remains the traffic situation,” the federal government said.
“In addition, the aim is also to promote competition between the carriers, monitor illegal and social labor on drivers’ working conditions and ensure that environmental standards are produced.”
In February and May, there were also all three-week inspections. Then there were 716 and 891 consequences, especially in terms of traffic violations and rust times. The politicians always say these results are “worrying” and therefore hope to quickly organize another action to raise awareness among drivers and their employers. blg
