    Why is it going to take till nextt year to publish report...

    The incident happened because the driver blacked out, also he told lies on his HGV medical form saying nothing about him suffering from blackouts, therefore the driver is to blame for the death of six people...

    There that took me a few seconds...

    I was driving my van yesterday and with a 20mph headwind I couldn't get more than 45 mph out of it. Glasgow bin lorry incident... 3025408739  And that's without a trailer. I'll be safe on Spanish roads then.
