I think this idea is important, it will lift pressure from drivers, who are under a lot of pressure already trying to meet deadlines and stay safe on the roads. Any idea that can make a drivers job easier and lift pressure, must make the roads a safer place, as the drivers can then concetrate on the most important thing they do…..driving.
The current regulation for HGV drivers to take a drivers cpc should be dropped. HGV drivers know how to do their jobs without putting more red tape in their way. We do not need to pass a course to tell us what our maximum weight and lenght should be. All this is covered in the current driving test, which is already one of the toughest in the world. I think it is about time we were allowed to get on with our jobs without more pressure, there is enough of that just trying to earn a living.
