Unguided missiles

There’s been further deregulation of working conditions for heavy vehicle drivers. It’s now legal to drive 17 hours in 24. Coincidentally, a report has just been released showing that one-third of truckies have admitted going to sleep at the wheel during the past 12 months. This is cheerful news for those of us who spend a lot of time long-distance driving. The only resistance to the new regulations has come from the Transport Workers Union. I'll be watchful of unguided missiles on my next trip down the Warrego. How does the Pigram Brothers song go - "Three dogs and forty tonnes...." and asleep!!!!
