Split response from drivers 

New rules requiring truck drivers to inspect their vehicles every day are aimed at preventing unnecessary road deaths.

The regulations are due before Tynwald this month.

Until now, only taxis and buses have required such regular inspections.

A consultation on the proposals garnered a 'discernibly split' response from drivers, many of whom voiced concerns over cost and red tape.

But Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer says it will bring the Island in line with British standards.
