REPORT BENNIE VERSCHUUR CHANGES TO A LOWER GEAR SEVERAL TIMES WHEN IN THE EARLY MORNING OF 27 MARCH HE LEAVES THE A12, JUST BEFORE THE GERMAN BORDER. ON THE MOTORWAY THE FOG DID NOT CAUSE TOO MANY PROBLEMS BUT AT THE EXIT THE VISIBILITY IS DETERIORATING FAST. BENNIE AND HIS FOUR COLLEAGUE DRIVERS ARE ON THE WAY FROM MOERDIJK TO LOBITH TO INSTALL A WOOD CHIPPER. ON THE BRIDGE ACROSS THE OUDE RIJN BETWEEN BABBERICH AND HERWEN THEY ARE ALMOST DRIVING AT WALKING PACE BECAUSE THE VISIBILITY IS NOW LESS THAN FIFTY METRES. JUST BEFORE SEVEN O’CLOCK ALL FIVE VEHICLES ARRIVE ON THE SITE OF PALLETFABRIEK DERKSEN IN LOBITH. ■  Bennie Verschuur 31
