Keep on trucking

In a recent survey of lorries, the local police in Santa Polo found around 32% displayed some irregularities such as lack of prescribed signaling, emergency equipment or fire extinguishers

In addition, they also discovered vehicles with defective or worn tyres, trucks with excessive loads and some that lacked the obligatory insurance.

On the other hand, the head of the Local Police, Jose Miguel Zaragoza, stated that they had not found any drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs nor were any driving beyond the allowed hours.

Well there is some comfort there. Even if the vehicles were a bit dodgy at least the drivers were OK.
