Sounds like he had no brakesThis is a true story, pictures available. A30 into Cornwall, I was overtaken by a truck doing 90mph. I was doing 75mph and he left me standing. It was slightly downhill, I grant you, but why did it have to do 90mph? Just because it could? A30 there is dual carriageway.
Would be good to allow them to "speed up" by say 10mph when overtaking, just to save everybody else's boredom. I shall have to join a truckers' site to find out what they think. So many examples of a lorry having to pull out to overtake a car doing 50mph. Should never happen. How the French get away with NO lorries moving on a Sunday, beats me.
