The Ministry of Justice has published information on prosecutions, convictions and sentencing outcomes, up to December 2019, which is available in the Home Office principle offence code data tool, available here:

Offences specifically relating to vehicle weight restriction offences are not specifically identifiable from within existing offence categories. This information may be held on court record but to be able to identify these cases we would have to access individual court records which would be of disproportionate cost.
