    Default ****** Trucks

    As you all know I am a Long distance HGV driver, anyway, finished work at 2.30 today and left the yard about 2.45. within 5 minutes of leaving the yard a Biffa waste truck past me in the opposite direction, a drinks can fell of the truck, bounced across the road straight into offside front wing, 2 big chips right down to the primer,couldn't stop anywhere, very busy and was in a rush to get to appointment. taken it to the bodyshop after appointment and booked in next tuesday, they will pick it up from the yard and drop it back again. £175 to redo the whole wing. Phoned Biffa and expecting call from transport manager monday morning, if no call then I'll be back on the phone. Well annoyed

    Not sure which section to put this in.
