I should have phrased that as "are you all from Edinburgh". People outside the capital seem much more cheery.

I was being Sarcastic...

Essentially i'm a Cynic- Rarely dissapointed (as I expect the worst)

Often Surprised (when the worst does not occur)

Anyway, back on topic..

Conversation I had last month via hands free and A-jnr dialing the number on the front of a van tailgating us through town.

Me : Hello, is that Interlink Express ?

IL : Yes.

Me : Hi. Could you explain to me why I have one of your vans 2 feet from my bumper with the driver holding a phone to his ear ? Is this company policy ?

IL : *large sigh OK, what is the van's number ?

I heard later that this driver denied it until they asked to see his personal mobile phone call log at which point he kind of remembered and apologised and took a telling off.

Thanks for reporting it! It's already illegal here for commercial drivers, but there's no enforcement.

Its always worth a go. I'm surprised drivers with phone numbers all over their vans take the risk.

EDIT - if you do this then they sometimes ask for your name and address. I found out from someone that this info is passed to the company and sometimes to the driver. Just be careful...
