jonm BS: Overturning vehicles (UK) (59* d) RE: BS: Overturning vehicles (UK) 06 Jan 07


Two thoughts:

According to the Highways Agency, the number of FOREIGN lorries involved in accidents on UK dual carriageways and motorways has trebled in the last five years. These are the vehicles which have the most difficulty seeing to change lanes or merge with other traffic, since the driver is on the "wrong" side.

Secondly, the type of coach involved in the recent accident has steering on its rearmost axle, which should lock above manoeuvring speed. If this locking mechanism failed, any minor steering input would cause the exaggerated swerving reported in the press, as anyone who has ever driven a fork lift can attest.
