Traffic Commissioner Kevin Rooney said the TM hadn’t made any realistic attempt, during 2018 at least, to debrief drivers on infringements. He'd "allowed a careless culture of non-compliance to fester".
Mr Rooney also said the TM took no action to correct wholly unacceptable maintenance arrangements.
Although the TM felt there was a lack of cooperation from the licence holder, the Commissioner pointed out that he didn't take any action to address this.
The TM was a transport manager in name only and therefore lost his good repute. He’s disqualified from acting in this role for three years and will have to sit and pass the TM CPC examination again once this disqualification ends.
