The absence of checking overloading of trucks in Himachal Pradesh by the state government has become a matter of concern. These trucks are not only flouting the provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act, but also resulting in fatal accidents daily. In the past few years, these trucks have damaged the state and national highways and government agencies like traffic police and the Transport Department have become a mute spectator. Trucks carrying cement, clinker, tiles and steel are flouting the provisions of the Act in the state and carrying load more than the prescribed limit of nine tonnes.
He does not do any of this but does tell me I am getting a ticket and it is for $465. I am to pay it by this date or go to jail. I tell him I will not pay this ticket and if my employer does not, I will be in this area on the date specified and I will look forward to him giving me a ride to his fine accommodations for a night or two in jail. I am tired of the truck driver being the blame for everything and putting up with this crap for trying to do our job.
Firstly, Thank You for visiting TrafficScrapes.com.
This is a labour of love for me.
I drive a Truck ( Over 29 Years Ekkkk Scary) and see so many foolhardy idiots on the road. Every day brings more challenging escapades...
One thing that i have realised from building this site and watching these funny videos, is that i am more aware of what can happen whilst driving, even the other side of the road.
Its made me more Driver Aware.
By every day, i truly believe the standard of driving is getting worse.
I can normally predict what someone is going to do, But then they surprise ME.....Grrr.
This is why i absolutely Believe in Dash Cams. These speak Volumes to the authorities, and your Managers.
Now that said, i don't believe in Cab cameras, that are pointing at the driver..... That can't be good. And my sympathies go out to all those drivers that have a snooping camera in the cab.
Please enjoy the site, I've made it as simple as possible, and hope you enjoy it as much as i have making it.
I promise to keep it updated with silly Gaffs...
At some point i will be doing some reviews on DashCams, because i believe these are necessary in this day and age, I'm going through my selections, and trying them out as we speak. Ile keep you all posted..
