Well i'm a truck driver myself But on some parts i have to agree about that dangerous driving.

No offence to the Polish and Czech visitors of this forum but those truckdrivers cause the most accident here in holland. A couple of weeks ago they stopped a Czech ghostdriver on the highway. After checking his alcohol level it was 10 times Above the legal limit here in holland.

The Dutch police are now seriously checking drivers from the east part of europe. Those guys are very often exceeding there allowed driving time. A truckdriver in europe is allowed 9 hours of driving each day 4.5 hours constant driving then 45 minutes resting then 4.5 hours again and after that they Must have a minimum of 9 hours rest. Some serious example of this year: they pulled guys that where a couple of hours 3 or 4 over there limit. but they also had cases that they found a driver driving 9, 12 or even 24 hours Constantly without any rest :? 8O ( After looking it op on the local news ) Thats just asking for accidents.

I think I've talked to the record holder at my office.
He's now driving inner German transports because he didn't want to drive throughout Europe anymore and the company he drives for now works exclusively for a big warehouse company, so it's standard routes.

Back in time he made Frankfurt-Barcelona-Frankfurt without any real rest.

Just refuelling, unloading and loading and one or two 5min breaks for "personal needs"
