    Default Foreign Lorry Drivers !!

    Just like to say that I've seen 3 Lorry/car crash incidents in the past couple of weeks involving foreign plated Lorries...

    Is this an upwards trend or something?

    Yup! Left hookers pulling out into the middle lane without having suitable mirrors to see the blind spot or simply not looking properly.

    I Know a few people this has happened to on the M25. To be fair to the truckers its quite often caused by the car driver " Hanging" in the lorries blind spot. I was taught years ago with lorries either overtake or stay back.. never hang along side, its an accident waiting to happen

    Yep, same here. If I'm passing a foreign lorry I'll get past it as quick as poss, or hang back until I can do the same - never sit alongside it.

    I was wiped out a few years back by an austrian driver on a roundabout. He was in the left hand lane (marked to go straight on) and I was in the right to turn right. However he intended to go right the way round the roundabout and back the way he came. 40 odd tonne of Scania wrapped round me....Cab on the bonnet and trailer across the boot....still my car was a Peugeot, so I take full responsibility!

    The lesson is...if it's foreign give it a wide berth and expect the unexpected.....cue the Roald Dahl music.
