    Wonder how they'd react if the lorry driver was armed with my Remington 870. :)

    Oh yeah, Europe, what was I thinking.

    Both the UK and the French governments needs to sort this problem out once and for all, it's been going on for far too long.
    If it happened to French drivers, there would be an all out strike, and then there would be something done. It's the british governments way of getting MORE money out of the haulage industry.

    When I done european work 20 years ago, we never had that problem. We could park up in Calais and walk down the town and have a few beers.
    When you came back, your truck wasn't even touched

    That's the good thing about trucking in the US. Any nonsense like this and we just pack some heat. No more trouble then.
