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!
