What a crap idea it is to allow 18 Tonne Lorries to be used in London’s busy streets. They are not fit to be in them. How on earth did their design get accepted? These large vehicles are designed for MOTORWAYS. Even a tank is smaller and you never see them on the roads.
Get these huge great lorries off our streets Now!
From the Islington Gazette today:-
“A SHOPPER died after being crushed under the wheels of an 18-tonne lorry – leaving her carrier bags and trolley scattered in the street.
The pensioner had just visited Borders and Marks & Spencer when she stepped out on to a pedestrian crossing in Upper Street, Islington, around midday on Tuesday.
Within seconds, she was in collision with a six-wheeled Iveco Eurocargo – ending up under its front wheels”
