I think the service areas provided at the moment are appalling for lorry drivers. There should be more lorry patrks up and down the country for these drivers. They are doing a very important job, one that really keeps us all going. They deliver our milk and bread, clothes, medicines, beer, bikes, cars, furniture, shoes, tyres, roof slates, false teeth adhesive, petrol, in fact just about everything the country needs to function. I've read that they have restricted hours to which they can drive, and must take stops by the law.
Seeing as these drivers are the backbone of everybody's everyday lives, why are they so heavily slated by the general public?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending bad driving by these huge machines, but we should be giving them some slack, not flack. The queues on the motorways where it seems they are poarkjed up is the operation stack system, where there are delays at the docks. That's not drivers doing what they want, its all part of our export system, again keeping the country going.
Not to pussy foot about but if anyone chooses to bad mouth our lorry drivers, then in personally think the bad mouthers are twonks who don't understand how a countries infrastructure works. They are doing a job that is essentiial to all of us

Maybe a lot of folk are just conditioned to the old system, and are incapable of accepting change?
I think the new system is great, and only dangerous if some clown decides to not read the road ahead.
