Quite good I assume. If you like being on the road all day. Just watch out for lil cats and dogs and kids and pigeons. They're very easy to miss so high up :p (I'm kiddin, I dunno)

You might have to get on the phone and ask around places bro. Unless we got some truck-drivers on board. lol

too many accidents? not really. thousands drivers drive every night and you seldom hear about it... i will be more careful but you never know...

pigeons? lol good one but really i think i love driving.

an old man who comes to my work place has driven a lorry for thirty five years and he says this job had good money but its tiring and lonely and you got to love it.. when asked did you like it? he said 'oh i loved it' so i guess its ok

Hmm. Whenever I think of Truck-drivers...I think, 'Late night' .... We were driving back from London once at 2am in the morning. The motorway was jam packed with Trucks and Lorries....Seriously...You'll prolly have long shifts and late nights.
