OH.... MY.... GOD!!!!!!!!!!

And I thought I'd assessed some toss drivers.

Gotta admit I only watched it 3/4 of thge way through cos its idiots (wont say DRIVERS) like this that a)give us (ex)professionals a bad name - and quite rightly too, and b) its people like this that cause so much carnage on the roads...

I noticed that they're all left hookers too...

Out 'F8%$ing' ragous driving.

Dumpy should re watch, and best is at the end where yellow LGV reverses along what looks like a footpath or similar.

Can you not "put on your thinking cap" (as my primary school teacher used to say) when driving? I mean can you just not be you when driving please. Just be someone else, someone responsible, even if you're not that when out of your vehicle, cos you'll find if you end up driving like that then you're going to end up killing someone, and that someone will probably be you.

- Something to say to these idiots when you laugh at them then pull 'em.

Trust me mate... I saw enough!! When I was on the lorries, people automatically assume that EVERYONE drives like that....

Irresponsible, dangerous AND outrageous

Unfortunately, it wont be the driver that buys it, it'll be the car with the family that gets wiped out. Just makes me angry at the selfish attitude of some HGV drivers

What the Hell!!!!

A qustion for our sensible resident trucker, What are they doing and Why?

Normally, If I'm going on a long journey I'm quite happy ti stay behind the truckers as I would as a rule say they are the safest drivers on the road, but the next time I'm coming down South I think I will be staying well out their road.

God knows... probably got lost and/or missed their turning. Thing is, they're all left hookers (LHD) so chances are they didnt understand the road layout, and (in theory) they are going the right way up the carriageway (as in, they forget we drive on the opposite side)

Also, if a British driver was to mess up on the continant, the police would be all over us like fly's round the proverbial (esp the Spanish and French....)

A lot of continental drivers (and the Irish) use the UK maniland as a corridor and some have been known to drive solidly for obscene hours. Try doing Dublin to Madrid in a 44t lorry... 3 times a week.... Cant be done - leagally.

Most of these driver could be owner drivers or contractors, and they have a saying - IF THE WHEELS AINT TURNIN', WE AINT EARNIN' so they'll do what they theink thay have to do. Most live in their trucks for weeks maybe months at as time, so they're gonna cut corners sometimes.

Apparently, the bridge the camera was fitted to was too low for the lorries (and had not been sign posted), their only option was to do a U turn there.

They should've informed the police first though, in my opinion.
