Police who checked 310 trucks and 30 coaches between Thursday and Saturday at four locations across the country say they discovered 53 drivers banned from driving.

THE NETHERLANDS - They also found 26 drivers who had failed to comply with compulsory rest breaks and ordered them to park their vehicles at the side of the road for a rest.

Twenty-five vehicles were discovered with mechanical deficiencies so severe they had to be stopped and repaired on the spot.

Two truckers did not have a license. Altogether, police discovered 133 traffic violations.
