Case Study 96

Rob is making deliveries during the night.  He is working alone and is given the keys to clothing stores where he unloads the pallets from his truck.  Rob is responsible for locking up the stores and setting the alarms after he has left.

He is driving a truck with a 18,000kg  gross vehicle weight and a kerbside weight of 9,000kg.  It is nearly ten years old and covered in dents and scratches, but it is mechanically sound.

Rob is an experienced and confident driver who has been driving for over twenty years.  Unfortunately, this evening he’ll have a slight accident when he hits a fence post.
