      Just keep the trucks on. When they break , they be so expensive to repair, that they usually get abandoned.
      That's the problem with them. Maintenance and repair costs.

      Good on China for spotting an opportunity in green technology and engineering! They could teach the Republicans and the Tories a thing or two.
