Piece of piss driving long rigid coaches through city streets. It's not like you have to go rogue and off an established route. Yeah it's long, but the arse never goes out of the mirrors, unlike an artic whilst bean-canning a Micra down the entire side that's in the massive blind spot whilst turning...

I remember positively exploding the door mirror of a Mk4 Fiesta with the corner of my rear underrun bar whilst reversing. Obviously I had the good sense to fuck off sharpish.

Plenty of times I've been driving a long rigid and asked about access only to be told that I'll be fine as they get artics in there all the time. YES THAT IS BECAUSE THEY FUCKING BEND!!!
Had all that shite when double-manned delivering kitchens and stuff for B&Q. OFF COURSE THE OIL MAN CAN GET IN, HIS IS WAY SHORTER.
After riding in a coach earlier this week I'll happily doff my cap to those who drive 50' long rigid coaches through city streets, and that's coming from me who would drive any wagon through the centre of London!
First time I ever drove in the centre of London was in a tri-axle double decker, with an open road atlas next to me. Only made more fun by that coach having a knackered compressor, which along with the tag axle dumping air over speed bumps meant it'd occasionally get stuck at junctions because the brakes wouldn't release. What a pain in the arse that day was.

They look more like the steel wheels used a mk8.

All three occupants were unscathed.
