Fraserburgh tacograph haulier George Davidson banned for life

A Fraserburgh haulier has been told by Scotland's Traffic Commissioner that he will be disqualified for life from the industry.

George Davidson was previously jailed after using a device to breach driving hours regulations.

He had been stopped in June last year in Cumbria.

A Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (Vosa) examiner told an inquiry Davidson's tachograph records revealed 69 instances of falsified records.

'Deluded opinion'

Scotland's Traffic Commissioner Joan Aitken said: "I find that he is a risk to road safety.

"That he has such a deluded opinion of himself makes him a risk.

"There is no evidence to support any finding that he could ever be a compliant operator."

Davidson was jailed for six months at Carlisle Crown Court in January.
