Keywords : Rac, Disaster / Accident

I HAVE read all the articles regarding tanker driver strikes and I agree that you have to fight your corner. These big firms win contracts on price and it’s normally the drivers who take the hit (classing weekends and bank holidays as normal working days).

I was also interested to read the extention of drivers’ hours to 11 hours from nine to catch up on supplies. I thought these rules were for safety but they can be extended when it suits.

Don’t forget drivers, after you have caught up with deliveries, next time you go over the speed limit or drivers’ hours, these people will be trying to put you out of work.
