  6. My observation from someone who is regularly at the port at Purfleet On Thames.......and often at Harwich, Hull, Immingham..... Foreign registered vehicles are few and far between at the ports now, as the freight now mainly consists of unaccompanied trailers (previously these were accompanied by foreign drivers in foreign registered vehicles taking goods to a destination here, and doing other haulage jobs here to get them back to a port and then taking a load back into Europe). So unaccompanied trailers now waiting in large numbers in the docks for onward shipping by our lorries, who are also bringing trailers in to the port to go back to Europe. So there's a lot of extra work for our haulage companys! Now we also have less drivers here too as some EU drivers that were based here have gone home (how many who really knows?.....) And just to add a bit of balance a few weeks back we had a 6 hour queue to get into the freight port at Dunkerque. Only 2 out of 8 or so ticket booths open and more health and customs checks now. Imagine what that does to your tacho and fuel when your constantly starting your engine to move only a few yards...... Why would a foreign driver want to come over now?......

  15. Muttering his Arnie impression, cos he knows he will be......
  16. You might not but... Average speed probably not due either way to the numbers.... More to do with the lorry drivers that are being "overtaken" not easing off to let another lorry past - just sitting on their limiter because they can.......an ego thing... or just not concentrating on their driving... Car/van/truck/any vehicle drivers not overtaking anyone but just sitting in the overtaking lanes oblivious to what's behind them or just don't want to be passed.."I'm here so you can wait" ... or just uneducated in how it should work..... I now ( having "retired" lol!) drive trucks, vans, abnormal load escort vehicles nationally and internationally for a living (done thousands of miles on the A1 between Herts and the north east ffs) , and I drive cars for whatever everyday needs I have It's really quite simple - keep to the left until overtaking, use your mirrors and indicators, be courteous, it will benefit everyone...... Don't need to get involved if some [email protected] wants to get somewhere in a hurry - let them and the law enforcers deal with it - what comes around... For me it appears to be a total lack of understanding and even training at the outset, the most important time on one's journey to being a driver.... And of course absolutely no one is perfect, we're all human and make mistakes and need to acknowledge that. It will help, but not solve the A1's issues.....
