Bridge-bash­ing lorry driv­ers should pay

Auto Express - - Inbox -

FROM: JE WHY do tax­pay­ers pick up the £23mil­lion bill for the 2,000 rail­way bridges crashed into by lor­ries each year (Is­sue 1,499)? Pro­fes­sion­als drive th­ese trucks, so charge them with dan­ger­ous driv­ing and re­coup the costs from them or their em­ploy­ers. It’s ridicu­lous that the pub­lic is pay­ing for th­ese mis­takes.
