27th November 2018 Lack Of Control Of Drivers Leads To Deaths and And Now Massive Fine For Bus Company
A bus company that is part of Stagecoach group ignored warnings about a driver who crashed into a supermarket killing two people. The bus company has been fined more than two million pounds.

27th August 2017 Self Driving Lorries In UK Pose Major Risk To Road Users
Driverless lorries in Australia USA Russia and the like could be a good idea, but they present to great a risk to all road users. The UK does not have the room other countries have to reduce the risk to road users.
In addition the technology is already here to make this possible right now, however the technology is not here to stop driverless lorries being hacked to death literally.
Fleets of driverless lorries will be trailed on Britains motorways from next year. The driverless lorries will accelerate and brake at the same time. The group of lorries have been called platoon’s.

21st December 2016 Hijack Of Lorry Driven Into Market In Berlin Creates New Threat To Fleet Risk Managers
The tragic hijacking of a Polish lorry subsequently driven into a crowd at a market in Berlin is a new threat that could easily be duplicated. The lorry driver was married with a son and he was the first victim of the terrorist attack in Berlin.
GPS on lorry indicates that the lorry was being driven erratically immediately prior to being driven into the market, suggesting that the terrorist attacker was learning to drive the lorry.
Could relatively untrained, unskilled lorry drivers drive most lorry’s into large crowd’s of people? Unlike learning to fly a plane to carry out a terrorist attack, hijacked large vehicles could be the new weapon of choice for terrorists.
Government’s and those in authority need to protect the public in a number of different ways. That is not the subject of this question. What to fleet owners and managers do now to protect their drivers from hijacks for the purpose of terrorist attacks?
This new risk is different. People attacking lorries for financial gain is not new. Hijacking large vehicles to kill and maim as many people as possible is a different threat altogether.
