    My husband left home at 6:15 and it took him one and a half hours to get to Petervale. Imagine how bad it is for those who left later!

    This is a clear example of the driver travelling too fast, he tried to brake, and his brakes overheated and burst into flame (quite cool actually) and then set fire to his curtain side trailers. Track his speed on the tachometer data uploads... then fine the company for F@@king up the traffic.
