Forth Road Bridge
In February, I was badly delayed heading up to Arbroath by an overturned lorry on the Forth Road Bridge. I blogged about it here.
Today's Evening News reports that lorry drivers who cross the Forth Road Bridge in high winds that could cause an accident are to receive a dreadful punishment.
What could it be you ask? A substantial fine that reflects the chaos that is caused when they overturn because they ignored the warning signs not to? Imprisonment maybe? Community service perhaps?
Nope. The punishment for driving a high sided vehicle across the Forth Road Bridge when the warning signs state not to do so is...........to be named and shamed!
Thats right, break the rules and they will send CCTV footage of you to the local media. Well, I don't know about you, but that's certainly put me off!
