I have been in the recovery industry for 28 Years truth be told it is longer i used to go out with my Dad when i was younger as soon as got my driving licence at 17 i was out on recoveries there was no of this its to heavy for that vehicle if it went on you took it and if it was going a long distance even if you had worked all day you took it . The recovery industry was not recognised we were just a garage with a recovery truck.Times have changed and for the better drivers hours driver training we have become more proffesional. In my opinion the one thing that is still lagging behind is roadside safety.If you are a recovery operator you know the dangers of working at the roadside on motorways duel carrigeways any roads we put ourselves at risk everyday to help out the motoring public. If you are cutting the hedges on the motorways you get cushion protection behind you on the hard shoulder we dont this needs to change there are people in our industry who are working hard to get us recognised and i thank them for that .The slowdown mover group is another fantastic way of making other road users aware of us and this needs to be pushed .In America slow down mover over is a big thing if you dont slow down and move over you can be prosocuted its the law it needs to be law in the Uk the video above says it all please slow down and move over www.slowdownmoveover.uk
The Video above shows how close we are to danger if you loose concentration when you driving you could change somebodys life Nobody desreves to go work and not come home Please SLOW DOWN AND MOVE OVER dont change somebodys life.
