Yet another lorry breakdown. If it has an up to date service record no problem, if it doesn't hit him with a big fine.

Why would it not be up to date on servicing, a recently serviced truck can still breakdown but if you knew anything about mechanics than you will know a ,lot of breakdowns have nothing to do with service items
A lot of trucks use the roads on route to and from the docks, a few break down when they do break down, more cars break down than trucks but you cant push a truck out of the way.

What are you babbling about? Why is everyone's solution to everything "fine them"? Why do we insist on playing the blame game every time something unforeseen happens? "Oh you had a puncture? Well, I can see your tyres aren't top of the range, so I''m afraid that's a £10k fine right there, and 500 points on your licence".

Next time something goes wrong for you - I expect it won't be long - take a long hard look at the situation and ask "is there anything I could have done to prevent this?" If there is, of course, you'll be happy to pay a big fine.
