HOW much importance you put on loading your vans safely and securely probably depends on whether you are a business van manager or a van driver.
Though it’s sad for us to have to admit it, many business van managers are more likely to be concerned with stuffing as much as they can into the back of a vehicle, regardless of whether it is legal or not.
Van drivers, on the other hand, are more likely to be worried about whether they will face the long arm of the law if stopped – or if the loads will hurt them in the event of a crash.
Like it or not, that is the case in Britain today, certainly among the smaller van fleets which maybe less well run.
Time to change then? Probably.
