VOICE YOUR OBJECTION TO MERSEYSIDE POLICE AND THEIR INTERPRETATION OF THE STGO.

Although AbHaulier, our abnormal load notification software, now transmits notification data to Merseyside's ESDAL account, Cascade still believes Merseyside Police's interpretation of the STGO is incorrect. Those hauliers that choose a notification method that suits their business should be able to retain their freedom of choice as to the method they wish to use to submit notifications.

Petition

I, THE UNDERSIGNED, OBJECT TO THE MANDATE BY MERSEYSIDE POLICE THAT I HAVE TO USE ESDAL IF I WISH TO SUBMIT AN ELECTRONIC ABNORMAL LOAD NOTIFICATION. I BELIEVE THAT THEIR MANDATE IS IN CONTRAVENTION OF THE 'THE ROAD VEHICLES (AUTHORISATION OF SPECIAL TYPES) (GENERAL) ORDER 2003' (THE STGO), THE LEGISLATION GOVERNING THE MOVEMENT OF ABNORMAL LOADS WITHIN THE UK AND THAT THE MANDATE SHOULD BE LIFTED IMMEDIATELY.

WHY SHOULD YOU SIGN?

IT SHOULD BE YOUR CHOICE HOW YOU SUBMIT ABNORMAL LOAD NOTIFICATIONS.

Merseyside Police statement:

“As of 1st June 2015, Merseyside Police would ask hauliers to submit all abnormal load notifications through ESDAL2 which is available online at https://esdal.dft.gov.uk/. For those hauliers who do not have internet access we will still accept postal notifications and there are no plans to change this at the present time. Unfortunately we will no longer be able to process email notifications received after 1st June 2015.”

Their above stipulation to hauliers directly disregards the 'The Road Vehicles (Authorisation of Special Types) (General) Order 2003' (the STGO), the legislation governing the movement of abnormal loads within the UK. The STGO details the specific requirements to hauliers when notifying authorities of the movement of abnormal loads.

Within the STGO, Section 3, Schedule 5 it states:

“3. The notice must be in a form acceptable to the recipient and should be agreed by both parties.”

There are no powers within the legislation covering the movement of abnormal loads that legally enable Merseyside Police to insist that hauliers submit notifications through ESDAL2 or in any other manner unless the haulier agrees. Without the hauliers agreement, or unless there is a change in the law, they are obliged to accept notifications produced in any manner providing the information contained within complies with those stated within the STGO.

THIS AFFECTS ALL HAULIERS NOT WISHING TO USE ESDAL
The current stance of Merseyside Police doesn’t only affect AbHaulier users, it affects any haulier or notifying agent who has elected NOT to use ESDAL2 to submit abnormal load notifications.

It is inappropriate and wholly unacceptable that Merseyside Police should insist that ESDAL2 is used to the exclusion of other electronic notification systems available to abnormal load hauliers. IT IS YOUR CHOICE WHICH METHOD YOU USE TO SUBMIT YOUR ABNORMAL LOAD NOTIFICATIONS.

IT’S TIME FOR ALL OF US TO ACT AND OBJECT
We have reached the stage where it is time to act further on behalf of all our AbHaulier users and any haulier not wishing to use ESDAL2. The more hauliers we can get to object to this blatant disregard of the legislation that we all work to, the better.

Please therefore support our objection by signing our online petition above and we will add your name to the list of supporters in any correspondence. We will also keep this area of our website updated with news, progress and copies of the correspondence we have entered into.

Our objections have been voiced to:

•    Andy Cooke, Chief Constable, Merseyside Police
•    The Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Secretary of State for Transport
•    The Rt Hon Anne Milton MP (our local MP)
