I thought HGV/LGV artics were restricted to 56mph? I followed a TNT artic truck on the A30 near Truro tonight doing up to 71mph , my car read 76mph and my GPS read 71mph.
They are and it's rare that the restrictor is inaccurate.I thought HGV/LGV artics were restricted to 56mph? I followed a TNT artic truck on the A30 near Truro tonight doing up to 71mph , my car read 76mph and my GPS read 71mph.
Grassdid you get the reg number ?
I have found TNT very helpful when dealing with complaints about vehicles
a while back I had cause to write to them re one of their drivers using a mobile phone while driving across a busy road junction
fired of a polite short email, did not expect a reply
got a phone call the next day to check the details then another a week later to confirm that action had been taken
Those bastards that pull those trailers of logs don't hang around either.it was carrying cattle, I was on a motorbike coming back from Oban along the Loch, I nearly jumped out of the saddle when it went past
fair credit it was in good hands, nothing silly but fast smooth driving
Agency are monitored in exactly the same way.Probs a Polish agency driver or the likes of, they'll know all the scams of disabling the restrictor. Very unlikely to be a company driver, as they are on digi tachos that are monitored.
Aye but you forget the vast amounts of petty criminals that turn up through agencies. The big companies couldn't give a **** about their staff, Drivers are ten a penny now. Analyze Yodel for example.Agency are monitored in exactly the same way.
Tacho is handed in to the transport office at the end of every shift and analysed on the spot.
Agency who fucķ up can be dismissed instantly. It's called 'banned off site'. Because the agency is the employer, the company can do what they like if they don't like you. Employment law doesn't apply. That's part of the reason they use agency.
I don't understand your point.Aye but you forget the vast amounts of petty criminals that turn up through agencies. The big companies couldn't give a **** about their staff, Drivers are ten a penny now. Analyze Yodel for example.
I've seen one bloke arrested at a depot as he was hitching a trailer, management totally oblivious to it, they just get on the phone to the agency and get another one in. Drive down the A1 at night you'll see any amount of LGVs speeding. Most the big companies are using agency and self employed.Reduces their overheads massively. They just pass the buck onto agencies and contractors.They all have shit hot legal teams as well.I don't understand your point.
Driving agencies don't (last I worked for them) do dbs checks.
What's being a petty criminal got to do with speeding?
You're right that the big companies don't care, but they absolutely care about their operators licence.
