Ac­tions of a sec­ond Gar­den Grove driver go vi­ral

Big Rigs - - HOT TOPICS ONLINE -

c A SEC­OND driver from South Aus­tralian com­pany Gar­den Grove was dis­missed this month due to un­safe driv­ing prac­tices.

Again the driver was ex­posed on­line af­ter a fel­low mo­torist shared shot of the out­door sup­ply truck over­tak­ing on a solid white line.

Read­ers raised a num­ber of ques­tions, in­clud­ing the ex­tent of the com­pany’s re­spon­si­bil­ity. Chris­tian H: “So the per­son who took the video are all squeaky clean in their ac­tions, I don’t think so. Why is the cam­era an­gle over near the cen­tre line? Maybe they need to be in­ves­ti­gated as well!” Dion K: “I know plenty of good Gar­den Grove driv­ers.

“The prob­lem you get when you have 160+ trucks not all your em­ploy­ees are go­ing to be the best of the best, and some ruin it for all the oth­ers.” Quintin W: “That’s the prob­lem now, to many bloody do-gooder narks with too much time on their hands with cam­eras and videos now days.

“All who think they are per­fect driv­ers and will lag you quick as.

“They should of checked the load re­straints on the snot on the flat top to while they were go­ing.”

Dale M: “There is no ex­cuse, half the heavy ve­hi­cle driv­ers out there shouldn’t be on the road!

“Hav­ing said that prob­a­bly 70% of mo­torists should not be driv­ing.

“Most peo­ple can’t even nav­i­gate a round­about with­out cross­ing lanes!”

Tara Mc: “Yes he got caught but how many car driv­ers do this too?”

Vicki J: “If I were to post up all the in­crim­i­nat­ing ev­i­dence from my dash­cam there’d only be trucks on the road.” Shayne C: “Old mate with the flat­top prob­a­bly called him around, or some­one fur­ther out in front.”

SPOT­TED: A sec­ond Gar­den Grove truck was caught out.
