Private companies are in business to make money for themselves. Their drivers are mostly employed as vehicle components where they can and are used and abused so that their employers can exploit them. If lorry drivers were employed by their respective governments and hired out to private operators then it is more likely that these hard working professional drivers will.be paid correctly and handsomely for the dedicated work that they do, day in, day out. Change the image of the professional lorry driver. Make them civil servants and treat them in the mannu that they desrve.
