    Or a red truck with no plates.

    Might be useful if they said what style of truck. The closed back with the shutter type doors or the open back flatbed type?

      HC = big truck.

    • Raw Onion says:

      Um, it’s a red heavy class Barritts truck with Coca Cola on it. Threre aren’t many on the road. Look at any Barritts truck then look at the tag since you are unable to figure out what to do.

    Just like the A** that left the JUST SHIRTS van double parked on Par-La-Ville rd today at 4pm next to an open parking bay causing massive traffic back up beyound the traffic light. Leaves his truck running with his hazard lights on for about 10 minutes. I had a good mind to throw his keys into the bushes for being so selfish and inconsiderate. I hope your boss reads this. A**

    • Islandguy says:

      I totally agree, people that double park when theres a bay, 3 feet away.This includes TAXI drivers etc.. or should i say espeically taxi drivers..
      But the police do it also so how can the enforce it.

  9. Family Man says:

    Check with the CoH. If they can’t clamp anymore they may have resorted to taking vehicles hostage.

    Can’t be hard to find a big red truck!
