  1. The fair dinkum “Kings of the Road”; here’s some Aussie Truckies in action, at 1 min 34 seconds there’s an interesting turn or events. By the way there are many women here that drive these rigs in WA, in fact they are much in demand by the fleet managers because of their work ethic and good driving

    • And I thought double rigs were big. Triple is ridiculous. Probably fine driving in a straight line, but the turns are what I end up watching closely, especially at a crowded intersection where they have to make the turn without smashing any cars (including mine) in the adjoining lanes, jumping any curbs, knocking over any signs, etc.

    • Makes me glad I drive a smallish car, even though I still complain about tight parking. Next time I’ll probably think of this truck and how much worse it could be.

  2. Just guessing here, but looks like an exterior roller gate above the small door to secure the dock area. So perhaps the larger opening is into general or uncontrolled parking. If you wouldn’t want to back a semi trailer in to a dock, most assuredly you would not want to enter such a parking garage and then hope to safely back out of it! (I really loved my VW Bug for tight spaces, btw) 🍀
