Location: Spa, Belgium.
Date: February 2008.
Remarks: After unloading at the Spa springwaterplant you'll have this view. I remember the old days at Beiten back in 1987 when this whole road was full of waiting rigs for a load of springwater. The plant is about 300 metres behind me.

Location: Spa. Belgium.
Date: February 2008.
Remarks: From Spa to highway E42 you need to climb this hill wich is about 2 kilometres long. With a full load of springwater in 1987 it was a long climb. Now I brought a load of bottles and returned empty, so it is peanuts now. Even downhill was a piece of cake with a retarder. But back in 1987 there was no retarder, so it happend frequently that the brakes were smoking like hell when you entered the town of Spa.
Location: Near Verviers. Belgium.
Date: February 2008.
Remarks: Northbound highway E-42. Nice view.
Location: Near Verviers. Belgium.
Date: February 2008.
Remarks: When approaching the city of Verviers, there's a steep hill going down northbound highway E-42. There's a speed limit for trucks and busses of 60 km/h. When this highway opened in the beginning of the eighties, a couple of truckdrivers got killed when they lost their brakes going down high speed. I remember driving for Beiten we drove down in the first gear on the hard shoulder braking on the enginebrake.
Location: Near Verviers. Belgium.

Location: Verviers. Belgium.
Date: February 2008.
Remarks: Northbound highway E-42. The second deadly accident was in this right turn. The truck driver lost control at high speed because he lost his brakes and drove straight away down into the town of Lambermont, 20 metres lower. After many more accidents with trucks, cars and a bus in this turn, they build a wall in the middle.
