    I have just discovered this blog and enjoy it very much.

    It is a moot point the issue of driving fire appliances. I have read of at least one driver who was medically retired after an accident that was not his fault but in which a member of the public died. Goes to show the ramifications of such an event and one would think the public would not gamble so much. However, I suppose it just does not occur to them how devastating a fire engine collision could be.

    Thanks for your kind comments Mark...

    It always seems to be the vehicle immediately in front of us that is blissfully unaware of our prescence. Cars ahead of them have seen us in their mirrors and pull over only to have the one in front of us overtake them. Just as they get in the middle of the road they glance in the mirror and see us looming large... Panic stations...
