Police use new Highways England HGV cab

STAFFORDSHIRE Police has taken delivery of a new HGV cab which has been used to help detect motoring offences across the region’s roads.
The work is part of the force’s continued work with Highways England in its national campaign, Operation Tramline.

The operation has seen Highways England loan out one of three unmarked HGV cabs to the force to help prevent collisions and change driver behaviour for the better. The three cabs are shared across England to be used on the Highways England network which includes the M6 and A500 in Staffordshire.

The elevated position of the HGV cab means officers have been able to drive alongside vehicles to detect any unsafe driving across the strategic road network.
So far, the cab has been used by the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) and will be used by Staffordshire Road Policing Unit (RPU) for two weeks over the course of 2021.
