Commercial vehicles that make you smile

Of course there are a minority of van and HGV drivers that are aggressive and dangerous, but most are fine. In fact there are many that keep me entertained with funny names, interesting livery, etc.

For example, whenever I see a 'Bedrock' tipper truck, I am unable to prevent myself whistling the Flintstones theme tune.

Then there's the 'Jim'll Mix It' cement lorries.

Anyone else have any favourites?

The van for a company called something like "High Impact Adhesives" with the registration:

G1 UED

The dirty white vans where someone's written funny things - i.e. 'I wish my wife was this dirty' or 'Been to Spain, do you like my tan'

A plumber that I regularly use, has a sticker near his rear door handle - 'Don't bother, I don't leave anything in it' - meaning no tools left inside.

In a village near me there's a one man band with his little van offering his tyre fitting and painting/decorating services:-
'Tyred and emulsional' it says on the side!

Didn't one of Dynorod's logos used to say 'The Lone Drainer and Pronto'?

I followed an artic down the motorway once. It was operated by "Davies Refrigerated Transport" and on the back doors was written:

"supercalibrefridgelogisticsexportimportDavies".:ohmy:
That's superb!:ohmy:

First thing I thought was the "dirty writing".

I have a video of one that says "Hazard 2 Health, The driver is dangerouse" (with the error :biggrin:)

Maybe a sticker to stop people breaking in should say... "Bondage Systems Ltd" ?

LOL, it makes a difference from 'clean me'
