    Drivers parks with half the lorry on the road with no park lights or reflectors. This is common on our highways and the reason for most accidents. Vehicles must get off the road with all 4 wheels off the tar when parking. The police must be vigilant on this matter. Im talking through 48 years of driving experience.

    Exactly! If the lorry was parked, why arrest the driver? I try not to complain about our LE. But sometime they do things that are soo illogical, one has to wonder if they have any brains.

    If the police were strict on there laws these deaths could be reduced dramitically. On the other hand citizens should obey the laws as well. via DM Android App
