Who cares? I don't. The sooner we out of the EU dictatorship the better.

Fine

Its not just the M20, they are everywhere and they seem to be above the law doing whatever they want. We live near to the M1 and foreign HGVs are regularly parked up in residential streets, on pavements and verges often for days at a time. Everyday there are queues of them through the high street even though there is a 7.5 ton limit.

Annual levy for an artic seems to be £1,000, maximum fine for not paying =£300. Well worth it not paying and risking getting caught out it seems.
