      Sick of car drivers blaming truckers! (Im not 1 by the way). They need more time to speed up, slow down and move around. You should drive 1 for a day and you would change your opinion im sure. Its careless car drivers that are the problem. To the other comment - limit is 70 not 60. Read the highway code! Easy to blame others when you are part of the problem! Give truckers a break!

        this was nothing to do with speed. it was a careless driver. the lorry driver was polish and speaks no english. the car that was hit in this case wasnt even moving. it was pulled over with hazard warning lights on. the trucks dash cam shows it never slowed or tried to turn.
