    This was highlighted last night on 'Tonight' Its a massive problem with left hook wagons not being able to see in huge blindspots. Plus, some of the drivers dont have legit licences!! Scary......

    yep the polish driver had no papers with him so the took him for a chat nothing will come of it though even left hand drivers should know what is passing them all you have to do is use mirrors more often
    i used to drive to gibraltar every fortnight in an hgv for 5 yrs in right hand drive never had an accident its just careless of them

    By design wagons do have big blind spots - when I see a foreign wagon on the Motorway, I almost always move to lane 3, even if nothing in lane 2. My car, my life and the life of the Mrs and I wont risk them sideswiping me

    Simple and safe advice there!! Its the same for everyone, or it should be. If only driving standards were as high as ours accross the whole of europe.... dont even get me started on Czech and Italian drivers......

    I changed company's late last year and now cover the UK and Europe and since this changeover the amount of foreign cars on the roads especilly in the midlands and down south is a joke.

    Open the flood gates and things break!!!!!!
