Taken for lorry ride.

Byline: QUENTIN WILLSON

WHEN is the Government going to do something about the scourge of foreign lorries? Truck drivers from Europe are allowed to fill up with cheap diesel on the Continent, wear out our roads, ignore our laws and undercut our haulage industry without paying a penny. The cops are getting increasingly worried by the amount of accidents caused by tired and distracted foreign hauliers. The Road Haulage Association estimates there are 10,000 ploughing up and down our roads every day, and it won't be long before foreign truckers outnumber British. Something must be done.
