Sat Nav

Lorry Drivers! Apart from being Sweaty Fat Hitch-Hiker Murdering Paedophile Bastards, why do you have to be thick and lazy as well? "Ooo, I'll just follow the directions from the sat-nav instead of looking at a map, and take my 38 tonner through b-roads and tiny little villages where I might get stuck, but first I'll do a ridiculous 5 mile overtake on a dual carriageway with my overloaded wagon and fucking well piss off everyone else on the road because I want to wind my window down and discuss my latest kill with the fellow cunt that I'm pretending to overtake."

Bastards. I can't wait for the day (and it's coming) when you fuckers are banished to lane 1 only, overtakes in emergencies only.

I have a proforma for when I deal with lorry drivers contravening a certain weight restriction. "I only came down here cos my sat nav told me to""Well ask your sat nav if it'll pay your ticket too"It wouldn't be so bad if there weren't 34 individual signs warning that there is a weight restriction in place.

Crap rant!!But when/if it happens that they are banished to lane one never expect to be able to join a dual carriageway or motorway again, because lane one will be nose to tail with lorries and do you think they are going to give way to whinging fucking car drivers!!

How narrow and impassable does it have to look before the reatrd manages to figure out that taking a fucking great wagon down it may not be a good idea?Mined ewe, some twat drove off a jetty because their sat nav said so...

Considerably narrower than this evidently:Which was wedged solid for 24 hours.

think its rather funny that all these incidents of people getting stuck in lorries happen despite it being on the news a thousand times! are lorry drivers really so stupid that they will trust a sat nav over pure common sence?i wonder if any have suffered thefts from their trailers while they are disabled?!

obviously you`ll notice that the truck has forign plates.Though sometimes it is nessesary to take a truck down a narrow lane, a little common sense is required, even if the driver don`t like the idea of going down the lane, especially if some farmer has diversified (using his EU grant) and set up a business from his farm, and they expect a delivery.i`ve had little old ladies twiching curtains wishing i wouldn`t scrape the paint off their porches, as i`d got to get though the S bend on the single track road to giles palmers farmyard.

It's like that at the moment! But it would remove the "AAAAAAAAAGGGH!" Do I slam on the anchors or hit the fast pedal as hard as I can as a lorry driving cunt just pulls out because he's so overloaded rather than lose 2mph going up a hill. Fuckers. No excuses.

Yes, often.There are lorry drivers AND motorcyclists that are thick cunts.

Cos nobody on brit plates follows sat navs blindly do they?

I use (some very narrow and winding), B roads a lot. I've lost count of the amount of idiots driving trucks and coaches who are creeping along or got stuck in the B roads.I'm not anti-truck or coach driver by any means, but the sort who try to take fuckin' great vehicles through these roads, are total dick-heads.It was in the news just a little while back, that a coach driver ended up in the middle of a field. Just because his Sat-Nav told him to.

you should always x-check the route using a map to make sure its taking you via the most suitable route, especially as theres more hazards to take into account when driving a truck

Quite.So why does anyone need to drive a 44T truck (only drive the tiddlers then do ya?) to have some perspective on the FACT there are thickos that try and do things they shouldn't in all walks of life?

Which was the point others were making.What was the one you were failing to make again?Oh yes, that some truckers ride bikes and dont use sat nav, and only foreign drivers make mistakes.

I use a sat nav when driving my wagon and if you apply common sense and read the road signs they are brilliant in town to find your destination.The only time it got me into shite was in Carlisle it told me to turn into a road and showed the destination half a mile away I wasn't convinced, it looked like it was putting me into a housing estate. While I'm debating what to do an artic followed by a double decker bus came out of the road. So I turned in after quarter of a mile I went over a hump backed bridge to be confronted by a 10ft high bridge. Not an advanced sign anywhere. The bus had obviously been in the estate and the tractor unit just fitted underneath it.Did I swear but if I'd have been using maps I would have done the same thing.

Not if you used one that marks low bridges.But then plenty of sat navs do that too and you weren't using one of them.

Of course that never happened before sat navs did it?

What about all the frigging car drivers who come to a hill and stay in top until they almost stall, before eventually deciding to change gear and steam away leaving the lorry/van/any heavy vehicle behind them to crawl up the hill having lost all momentum?That's the tossers you should be moaning about.

It's tough enough for truckies at the moment so can we ease off please. I make my living in this industry and am in truck yards every day. Most of you folk get to sleep in yer own bed at night.

Diddums. And here's another fucking nuisance. The signs for Bayeux when you get off the ferry in Caen/Oustrieham. If you follow them you end up in a fucking housing estate. Now I've been going there long enough to know the right way, which isn't the way the signs head you. Grr. I'm just in a bad mood. And you trucking cunts getting arseholed on the ferry, well just.

Just take the bloody coast road, you get there in the end.There's a nice little restaurant on the sea front at St Aubin-sur-Mer if you want to break the journey.

It would have been sooner but he got his truck stuck down lovers lane following his GPS.

No you plank I work in the truck industry representing them therefore I will show support. Goods don't walk themselves to the the shelves do they

SatNav would appear only meant to be used in cages, or certain ones for bikes. But even at that it is shite. If it was meant to be used in trucks they would have put software on them that notes narrow roads and low bridges. But if they did that it means more mapping, and would cost more and tight truckers won't buy it.On the only occasion I've used it, it was only any good at telling me where I was, and no fucking good at telling me how to get anywhere.

i love doing that

Well fuck off you lorry drivers anyway, we're talking about France now. Surely you must have your own forums where you can chat about rolling hitch-hikers up in carpets and burying them in woods, or the shit way you crawl out at junctions because you are illegally overloaded and can't fucking accelerate properly.

They do, or at least Tom Tom does give you the choice to set it up for bike, car or truck/bus. But unless the trucker RTFMs, it will stay preset to car routes.Which would you believe? Road signs or sat-navs?

i'm not going to read the whole, (cos i'm lazy)but now if some can actually be bothered, and not be such a tight arse, there are programs for sat nav that will plan a route to avoid width restrictions, and height restrictions too.and to all you truck haters, fuck you all, if you need to brake hard then you obviously didnt pay enough attention to the fact that the truck needs to overtake, and your too wrapped up in your own little rushed world to give up a few extra moments. its wankers like you that actualy cause the accidents. and then cause road closings.granted there are some truck drivers that really could do with learning to drive or better still, sit behind a desk in some tidy little office, but then most car drivers are wankers anyway.

Why is that a massively disproportionate number of fatal accidents involve LGVs then?

You hit the nail on the head. Truckers can't read...they just follow the arrows.

My little i3 Streetpilot has a vehicle type setting. If you select truck it keeps you to major roads. It appears vehicle type setting isn't on many of the bigger sat navs?

Oh right, so cos you work in the trucking industry you support cocks that are too thick to realise the poxy little lane they are being sent down is too small for their hoofing great truck, or that the sign saying 12'3" actually means the GPS is talking bollox.Good man.

Most have a setting for trucks these days.Both my Tom Tom and Zumo do.

Cos none of them pull out at the last moment with no prior indication of their intentions do they?

Quite.There's arseholes in control of all types of vehicles on the road.

I fucking hate lorry drivers. Having to deal with the ignorant bastards every day on the A34 whether I'm in the car or on the bike, the stupendous display of shit selfish dangerous driving leaves me breathless with rage. Cunts one and all.

So does my Garmin, still tries to send me down 7.5 tonne limit roads though. Actually things would be a lot better if only LGV's were allowed to use motorways and dual carriageways, lets the little cages and crap stick to the scenic routes.Would allow all your goods etc to get to the shops that much quicker, its a winner all round!!

The A34 has gotta be one of the worst roads for em tbh. Everything has to crawl up all the hills just cos they choose to fill both lanes.

No worse than the A42/M42.Or the A14.Or the A1.

Dingbat wrote

It is IMO/E.The hills are far steeper than on the A14 so everything slows to a crawl. That hardly ever happens on the A14 specifically and most of the A1, where things only slow down to 50ish most of the time.I have no idea about the 42s as I dont ever drive them.

come on Abel, you should know better, as said there are arseholes in control of all types, but why jump on the guy who's earning a living? those that think they know best, really should try a day in wagon that takes 5 miles to get to 56mph and then 200+yards to scrub speed off, only then maybe will you fully appreciate the skill.

And, fucking AND, if I rode between the bastards and then popped a few rounds back through their windscreens, it would be ME that went to jail, how fucking fair is that?

If driving a lorry is that skillful how come they only allow chimps with no awareness of what's going on around them into the cab?...and if you intend replying along the lines of 'skilled HGV drivers have perfect awareness of what's going on around them', my answer is why don't they fucking care about it then?

Why not?If they are driving like an arsehole, they are driving like an arsehole.WTF has the fact they are trying to earn a living got to do with it?Don't car drivers do it to earn a living then?

Yeah, the skill is something a lot of these cunts haven't got.The skill is in indicating your intention prior to you carrying it out, so those travelling at twice your speed don't have to do an emergency stop cos you pulled over 6 foot in front of them at the same time as giving an oh so helpful flash of your indicator.The skill is in making that indication at a time that enables you to SAFELY move into the other lane, without giving the tosser in the car time to floor it and fill the gap you are headed for, yet giving them enough time to SAFELY back off and let you make your pass.The skill is in choosing your place to overtake where your speed is high enough above the lorry in front that you can nip past relatively quickly and not drag the manoeuvre out over 6 miles.The skill is in reading the road ahead AND behind so you don't leave it to a last minute decision to pull out or hit the lorry in front or brake.The skill is in not being a think mong of a fucktard, and actually being able to drive.Some of us actually have that skill.Some of us don't.What is your problem with that fact?

You rock, Abel, tell it like it is!

quite unlike the ignorant cnut driving the car or riding on his bike on the a34 with the big virtual sign saying "i am a trucker hating wanker" that will cause all truckers to go out of the way to piss him off....got up out of the wrong side of the bed again did we mcsatan?
