    Has anyone else seen the images of the idiot hanging out of the van on the motorway?

    Presume NR Lifesaving rules will now be applied to KJ Rail and they will be suspended from NR Infrastructure for such blatant disregards.

    If he was unwell, wouldn't it have been more sensible to stop the van so he could get some fresh air ?

    From the article the witness and photographer has said

    The photographer is clearly not in the middle lane from the photos. Whilst the pictures make it clear of the incident, anything not in the pictures can possibly be disregarded.

    According to the boss, as quoted in the Daily Mail, he was leaning out of the van 'because he wasn't feeling unwell.' Doh!

    He'd have felt even more unwell if he had fallen out:roll:, idiotic behaviour!

    He is also blocking the drivers view from the nearside mirror.

    You would strip a company of its contracts because of e lucky to have any railway at all with that sort of attitude.

    If he'd have risked it and kept quiet, it would have been difficult to prove just by those photos the vehicle was in motion while he was hanging out.

    Not that I condone his behavior, totally moronic thing to do.

    Its a company of 'questionable' characters anyway so this doesn't surprise me. One flew past me in Wigan a few weeks ago doing about 50 in a 30 with music blaring.

    I wonder what would have occurred had a police motorway patrol car had sight of this alleged incident.

    I think him and the driver would have both been getting fixed penalty tickets or prosecuted.

    The sort of thing you would expect from some brain dead chav on police camera action!

    Are you referring to the driver/vanman or the police?
