    I also had similar to my other one on a roundabout. Car came out despite me being on the island, went under the trailer and then politely put his hazards on. i couldn't move so ended up trying to rock the truck until the wheels touched the ground again, and shunted my way through the traffic build up.

    I get my own back though, when I see cars trying to overtake me on roads i move out slightly so they have to slow down, they end up stopping in oncoming traffic.

    I was doing that between Aberdeen and Glasgow. Drive on the side of road then wrong side. Just to make up time. Doing 50-60mph during rush hour.

    What controller are you using? I may use the xbox controller.

    I use my keyboard (I have an emprex Cheetah 9051H keyboard), which has a rotating WASD section. Its great for gaming as I can move it so it is comfortable

    Keyboard too. basically the default keyset given as i haven't seen a need to change it. i do have an x360 controller but i feel the keys give that slight more accuracy at times (especially reversing). normal driving/racing games i'd have said controller

    Thought I'd have a look at this over the weekend so downloaded the demo and after a couple of short runs downloaded the full game and expansion from steam. I can't believe how addictive it is. My wife is now a Eurotruck widow.

    @L3OUGH No multiplayer, though it has been requested by many people. There are mods which make it possible, but they lag so much its not worth bothering. Just need for my PC parts to arrive and I will be happy (hurrah for 6core CPU, 16GB RAM and a 2GB GFX card ) however I play at work during lunch hours, so not too bad.

    and @cromertech yes, mine is also when it is available to play at home. lol!

    Hopefully I won't have any trouble playing this maxed out (My new system spec: New i5 4.2GHz, 8GB Veng RAM, 2GB GTX 760)! Anyone got any idea how big the game files are? As my internet connection at home isn't great, at all.

    Roll on fibre!

    the game (from steam) is around 2GB. The demo is 600mb, however if you renew through the demo, you add a further 1.5gb to download....and thats excluding DLC
