Mr Saber Nazary, from Stetchford, was driving a van crammed full of fruit and vegetables and was weighed by officers from Solihull Council’s trading standards team on 22 August 2018. When weighed, it was found to be 60% over the legal weight limit. Which meant it was around two tonnes over the weight limit.
Mr Nazary was due in court on Friday 5 April, but he did not appear. The magistrates found him guilty in his absence. He was fined £1,100; he was also ordered to pay £400 towards costs and a £110 victim surcharge, a total of £1610.
