Fork Lift Association & Thorough Examination

Make Sure Your Forklift is Secure

A seasonal reminder to make sure that you secure your forklift when not in use. The BBC News website reported that a New Year's Eve party goer was arrested for driving a forklift on a public highway at over twice the legal alcohol limit for driving! The 20 year old driver was arrested on the road between Forfar and Quilko at Hogmanay. His excuse was that he couldn't get a taxi so he had taken the forklift from his employers yard. So make sure your forklift is securely locked and the keys are not accessible!!!
