Issues then are still issues now
SITTING at the Thor truck wash, I started reading Big Rigs.
I got angrier and angrier reading the same crap us truckies have been whinging about since the ’70s.
Nothing has changed, the issues are all the same.
Deadly logbooks, pointless fines, s--- roads, lack of parking and generally using truckies as an unlimited source of revenue.
I can’t read our industry’s mags without getting depressed. patch of dirt.
Congrats to all involved in flipping the ATO’s decision on driver allowance. The win proves when the industry comes together it’s a formidable force.
As always if you’ve got a story to share I’d love to hear from you.
And to the driver who rang about sharing his cab with his 60kg mastiff, phone us next time you’re up this way, we’d love a pic.
Nothing is being done about any of our main issues, except pointless talk.
Oh, except for the safety side of it.
At least now, dressed up like an astronaut and with the right inductions for every single business in Australia, we can sit in a corner and watch our loads take 10 times longer to load and unload.
