    From some of the comments on the other thread, i am sure there are some who would blame the red car for overtaking there and making the tugger think he could do the same..............:whistle:

    Depending on the length of the truck he could almost have passed the bollards on the wrong side there doesn't seem to be room to do otherwise as the road has narrowed right down when he appeared??

    The lorry driver had only just passed the island in the road so how the tower thought he'd get out, round and in again fails me.
    Bloody idiot who could have killed pedestrians and/or other motorists. Hope he/she is prosecuted.

    I'm sure some of the people from the other thread will be along in a minute to say it was obviously 100% the lorry drivers fault for being born and everyone should know that tuggers have absolute right of way on all roads all the time and no laws apply to them. :doh:

    Maybe all tuggers should be made to take 10000000 hours of additional training and a test costing £50000 before being allowed on the road. All the ones I've ever seen, including in the two videos, are a complete bloody menace.

    And I suppose all Motorhomers are excellent drivers who never make mistakes ?? Yeah right
    Sorry but some Motorhome drivers are laughable in there pathetic attempts to reverse and manoeuvre there vehicles , its well seen they have little or no experience of driving anything bigger than an average family car prior to becoming Motorhome owners . Perhaps they should also have some additional training then they might just become competent drivers instead " Steering wheel attendants"

    Missed the point completely old boy. If you read the other thread on this subject you will see that a number of people seem to think that all professional van or HGV drivers are the scum of the earth and automatically to blame for any accident within 50 miles of their location and apparently should be shot if they wake up in the morning. My comment was aimed at those people.

    Absolutely, that's why hgv vehicles are responsible statistically for the fewest accidents on the road! Out ravenous behaviour if you ask me! :)

    edit to add that auto correct changed my post in the most amusing way there
