White Van Man

Melbourne (and my job) are turning me into that proverbial white-van-man. You know, they guys who cut you off in traffic, make U-turns whenever they like and double park 'cos they can? Well, that's me.

When I'm in a work vehicle, it's either a white van with the company name on the side or a red Zafira with a 'courier' sign on the door, I pretty much drive where I want, when I want.

I double park, I take up loading zones for as long as I need and, yes, I even make the U-turns whenever I want; more importantly, whenever I need. Which, with my sense of direction in this city, is pretty often!

AND, I've managed to stay out of the way of the trams so far!

Chat soon,

Seems you've gone over to the dark side. Beware of road-rage!

Staying out of the way of trams sounds like a good plan.

Hi DelBoy,
I enjoyed reading your blog. I am also van driver.
Very often people do not like van man, cause they think that drivers are too rude and impolite and that we do whatever we want on roads breaking the rules, but it is a really our work and people have to know about it. Thanks for the blog, you are encouraging me.
