ln any comparison between the scenes on British roads 30 or 40 years ago and those today, there are a number of dramatic changes. The level of traffic has increased, the scale of the roads is greater and there has been a vast growth in the number and size of lorries operating on the nations highways. ln the 1990s, the economy of the country could not survive without the motorway network and the huge trucks that constantly pound their way along it by night and day.
In the decade since the first edition of this book has been produced, there have been a number of significant developments which have altered the road haulage business. Several of the old established manufacturers have disappeared or been merged into new combines, European legislation has increased the gross tonnage permitted on Britains roads and a whole host of new models has appeared.
Reflecting the many changes in the industry over the past 10 years, this new edition of a popular and successful book has been fully revised and re-written and includes a wholly new illustrative selection. Describing in detail the many types of truck to be seen on Britains roads, this new and fully revised second edition is an indispensable guide for all those interested in road haulage and the vehicles operated.
