Chain Of Responsibility (COR)

Understanding Chain Of Responsibility (COR) Offences

COR, as these offences are commonly referred to, cover an enormous area in which drivers and operators go about their business.

It has become a buzz-phrase for authorities, but it still very often misses the mark. If you are a driver and feel that you are penalised for an offence for which you are not directly responsible, this is often encompassed by the are referred to as 'Chain of Responsibility'.

Often drivers face excessive penalties for practices that are encouraged or even mandated by employers. Equally, sometimes operators are penalised for the actions of irresponsible drivers. Either way, this is a complex area of law and contacting us will be the first and most important step in unravelling the mystery of COR.
