The article discusses the priority given by police and crime commissioners (PCCs) on fighting crime in road transportation in England and Wales. It states that less than one fifth of PCCs plans in their four-year term identify crimes against lorries or hauliers. It says that in Kent, the need for secure overnight parking areas is highlighted. It adds that the PCCs who make road transport safety a priority recognise the industry's importance in the economy. INSET: SUFFOLK'S APPROACH.
