Report the misuse of weight restricted routes by lorries

Lorry Watch is a scheme operated using local people to identify the misuse of weight restricted routes by heavy goods vehicles in Nottinghamshire.

Heavy vehicles are not allowed to travel along certain routes which are considered to be unsuitable. Large vehicles using these routes can create serious safety hazards for other road users and pedestrians, in particular children.

Read more information about environmental weight limits [PDF].

You will need

  • vehicle registration number
  • date of the sighting
  • time of sighting
  • name or number of the road.

Your contact details are optional.

What will happen next

When we receive your report we will:

  • obtain plate details from the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) to check if the vehicle identified is over the weight restriction mentioned
  • make a decision as to what action is necessary.

Please note: All Lorry Watch submissions are followed through to conclusion, but it is not possible to give individual feedback.
