    When will our bungling politicians ever do anything about the HGV issue on this road. I live on the A339 and almost every trip I see HGV's within feet of cars (Tailgating). Pulling out on people. Overtaking on blind spots, using mobile phones etc. The police do nothing. Its not just a matter of time until someone gets killed, it has happened. Make them use the A34 - That's what its for.
