Angry Paul comes out fighting after near-miss
By Dennis Amor
Have your say
Klat has come out fighting after a former truckie joined the growing call
for special caravan towing licences.
And the angry traveller has produced
photographic evidence to prove it is not always caravanners
who are fault.
"I love the superior intellect that tells a bloke everyone else is the
problem," he told Caravanning News.
His photographs taken near Wisemans Ferry in NSW clearly show a truck and
dog trailer crossing double white lines on a narrow road as it approaches
Mr Klat's rig head-on.
"Here is my Toyota with a 'van in tow being pushed off the road," he
no tales . . .
"I radioed him to
say that had an accident occurred he would have blamed my caravan for
going straight at him. Dead men tell no tales so he would have been dead
"Due to me going hard left and him going hard left as well,
it gave a lot of camera shear and I could not get his number plate. But it
is I who needs an endorsed licence ...right?"
caravanner Patrick Glassborow recently argued
that special caravan towing licences were
"A licence is definitely needed for caravan drivers, without question," he
said in the Big Rig newspaper.
"By definition it can't be the same as any other licences and must cover
their weights, their loaded weight distribution and emergency handling
actions when needed."
Mr Glassborow believed minimum standards must be met before
inexperienced caravanners were allowed to hit
the highways, possibly endangering other road users.
