How to deal to high fuel prices
Truck drivers in Europe have found an interesting way to deal with rising fuel prices - blockade the major highways.
Following on from a 3 week strike by French fisherman, hundreds of French trucks have blockaded motorways and border posts, causing traffic mayhem. About 30 kilometres of traffic jams have been reported in and around Bordeaux.
The truckers are "demanding immediate measures" to counter the impact of high fuel prices., and their action will continue indefinitely.
