Thanks for the reply but it is still unclear. Should i have been given a print out showing the weighbridge scale is reading zero before being asked to drive on and being weighed.
Basically should i have two print outs. One stating zero and one stating the gross weight of my vehicle.
I have been given no paperwork nor has a calibration certification for the weighbridge used been quoted on any documents I have received. I have requested this subsequently but was told that my local harbour board (where the vehicle was weighed) is not part of freedom of information.
Just wondering if I can use any of this information to back up a "lack of evidence" from the prosecutor.
