What would you do?

YOU are driving along a remote highway and spot a truck parked up at a rest area with the driver's feet hanging out the window.

Is the driver deceased, ill, or maybe just having a sleep?

First thoughts may be that if he was having a snooze, a much more comfortable option would be in the sleeper box.

Would you knock on the outside of the door to ensure the truckie isn't ill and needs help - or do nothing?

A cardinal rule at roadhouses or rest areas is never to wake up a truckie who is asleep.

I heard some truckies at an eatery talking about this subject after they had seen a "legs out the window situation" up the highway.

Two drove on and the other gently knocked on the truck and discovered the driver was having a nap.

The above situation has happened to Spy several times and it can prove to be a dilemma on what action to take.
