If you see a red mercedes truck (40 tonner i think) bearing the livery olearyinternational.com and having a polish number plate starting wpi ...would you please do all you can and take a photograph of the truck please. For those of you who don't know .i was nearly killed by a lorry belonging to oleary international last year.

All attempts to trace the polish driver have not succeeded and oleary refuse to accept any liability and claim it wasn't their truck . I really need a picture of one of their trucks with polish reg as they registered 25 a few years back with sequential number plates.

Please keep your eyes out especially if you travel anywhere between anglesey-liverpool-bham-folkestone using motorway routes.

They have over 95 liveried trucks so we may just spot one. Here is an example of what they look like and the style of registration plate.

Theres a bridge by knutsford services that crosses the motorway if your ever passing and see guys up there with cameras go and have a chat with them they take pics of all the wagons going past so if theres only say 13 off these wagons in the uk they would want to take a pic of them you never know they might have your wagon before and after pics

Ian there are 25 trucks with a similar reg in O'leary's fleet. The one I'm after is WPI YE49. The pics we have are just a few digits away from the one I'm after.

Nothing much to add other than a dash-cam looks more and more like a good idea.

From www.licenseplatemania.com/landenpaginas/polen.htm:

Polish vehicle registration plates since 1st May 2000 start with a group of letters, indicating the district. The first letter indicates the province.

WPI is the province Piaseczno.

Dash board cams. £9 on eBay and they have a 1 inch preview screen, So you can be sure you have the rascal on video if you see him... They record 24/7 bin a contiuos loop, but you can press a little button and record an event that wont be recorded over, it has to be deleted.

At leat that the way it works on mine.

I've definitely seen one of these trucks on the M40 southbound between Wycombe & Beaconsfield recently because I remember thinking that O'Leary doesn't sound very Polish. I'll keep an extra eye out on my travels.
