An Irish truck driver fears Cononavirus exposure from inspections and is taking a stand, according to The Irish Examiner.
The driver, 64-year old Kieran Donovan says that inspectors are “moving in and out” of trucks across Ireland and most of Europe and is concerned that there seems to be no particular safety measures being taken, according to the driver.
Donovan says many drivers are in their mid to late fifties and beyond and are “particularly worried about the situation” because they are in the higher risk age bracket for the virus. He says a driver might get stopped twice a month by up to four or five officials conducting checkpoints.
“One will hop into the cab to see the driver card while others will check the back of the truck ad underneath” he says.
“But the problem is they will have done the same with dozens of lorries coming in from God knows where before that.
Donovan reportedly called the local authorities to express his concern, but has not heard back.
