I have always been curious about the language barrier and long distance trucking in Europe. I wonder if the language barrier is as bad now.

I'm sure it is to a point, but many speak a enough of different languages or at least enough English to get by.

Of all the worlds long distance trucking Europe TIR and the blokes that went to the middle east from Europe amaze me the most for a lot of the reasons mentioned above

 

Fantastic stuff and thanks for sharing

Had a friend from Birmingham UK who was an o/o ran into France and Italy in the alps, I never asked but I suspect those drivers knew enough of the other drivers languages to get by! Plus being drivers they can understand each other's problems etc! He told me the drivers that run thru long uninhabited stretches of the Alps carried a tow bar to help their fellow driver if he broke down!
