Trucks on the Warrego
I spend a great deal of time driving up and down the Warrego highway.
There are always plenty of heavy vehicles, but now they're in the majority, and to a large extent are choking the road, which was never designed for the current volume of trucks or their size.
Generally, the drivers are courteous and skilful, but there are exceptions.
Watch this bloke wander across the double line at about the 20 second mark. I'm not sure whether it was inattention, or a dodgy rig, but I made sure I gave him plenty of space when I finally did overtake.
This was on a section of road with a 110kmh limit, so there was no room for error.
The camera is my trusty Uniden 800, which is always on.
I hope I never have to use any of the sequences as evidence, but it's reassuring to know that everything is recorded. It keeps me cautious as well.
