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

25,000 miles per year, I did that in reverse gear when I was trucking.

You seem to have a very dim view of me and my trucking collegues, I would guess that you car drivers have many more accidents per unit than trucks have, still its nice to ignore the facts I suppose..

As for the poor driver of the coach, one thing I am certain of, he did not start his days work planning to take life.. I hope with all my heart that some problem is found that may have caused the horrible accident that took 2 lives and injured many more, my thoughts are with all the relatives of the victims of this catsatrophe.

Why do trucks turn over, the answer is simple, because they weigh so much, and are so high, they ARE [fact of life] much less stable than a low down light motor car. Compare a large 4x4 with a ground hugging sports car, which would be able to go round a hairpin bend the fastest and come out of the other side, sports car every time.
