jeez not another hgv bashing thread
obviously everyone else on here is perfect at their jobs and never puts a foot out of place
most truckers will put their indicators on to idicate their wish to pull out and wait for the cars to move over or flash them out, which most do, but some car drivers are either pig ignorant or too engrosed in their satnav or mobile phone or kids or anything other than the road in front of them to even realise there is a truck wanting to pull out, so a lot of bad hgv driving is down to frustration with other drivers.
as for hgvs only being allowed in lane one
i didnt realise everyone elses journey was vastly more important than any trucks journey. i guarantee my load is far more important than pretty much any car journey.
if all trucks are stuck in lane one nobody will be able to get on or off a motorway for the long line of trucks in the way stuck behind the asda wagon doing 50mph
and the motorways would be awash accidents involving trucks going into the backs of each other through utter boredom and frustration. oh and everyone would soon get fed up of nothing being delivered on time because the driver ran out of hours 5 miles up the road
and the reason trucks tailgate is partly to do with lazyness and mostly to do with all trucks having give or take the same top speed, if they werent restricted you wouldnt get stuck behind any other trucks, because you would have the extra oumph to overtake, but that would mean we all would be doing 90mph pulling 40 tonne and nobody wants that.
im not saying all truckers are perfect, by no means, but to tar all with the same brush just because of the experiance you had on one day on one road is very small minded. i see idiot car drivers doing mindless things on a daily basis but i certainly dont consider all car drivers to be the same. some actually have a clue what they are doing
