Not only are there good aspects to being a heavy rigid truck driver but also bad ones as well. For example, when driving trucks, it is important that you keep your vehicle clean at all times to avoid paying fines if caught by traffic police for having an unclean truck. Although most people don't think twice about who cleans their car or company vehicles that they drive, certain jobs require specific tasks before and after working hours which can include cleaning up any dirt or mud from tyre tracks on surfaces where other cars have parked so it doesn't ruin anyone's day because otherwise, they will receive a penalty. It is also a very tough job to be a truck driver. It is very hard on the body because it takes time to build up the muscles needed to handle such large vehicles that are difficult to manoeuvre at times, especially when driving uphill or downhill and requires great strength in order to maintain control of the vehicle through any weather conditions. Driving heavy rigid trucks can also be dangerous if you don't follow certain safety guidelines like stopping fully before entering an intersection so your trailer doesn't swing out into other lanes causing accidents, checking tyre pressure regularly for better grip while turning corners, making sure you're not fatigued after long hours behind the wheel which could lead to mistakes happening more easily than usual etc. Heavy Rigid drivers should always make sure they stay alert during their shift as well as when driving through the night. This is because night driving can be more deadly than during the day due to reduced visibility and fatigue.
