Truck driving in Africa

Here in Australia we complain about the conditions we have to put up with on the roads. We carry on about irresponsible drivers making our life tougher and putting us in danger. We also demand a large bunk in a spacious sleeper cabin if we spend nights out.

Compare our conditions to the lot of this tipper driver in Nigeria, apart from terrible roads, crazy drivers and difficult working conditions, he is always in danger of being hijacked by gunmen. He probably regards himself as lucky, at least he’s got a job and a good modern truck to drive. However, the road and work conditions in Nigeria are, literally, third world and our hero in the video, Matthew, deserves our respect.
