    Exactly there should be regular service points..

    Just to be clear tho, I'm not saying they're disgusting, sadly they have no other choice. Apart from getting a bucket and bag which some do already....

    At least have the common decency and politeness to dispose of it in a sanitary and none offensive way perhaps??

    No excuse at all for just shitting at the side of a road... Or pissing in a bottle and lobbing it out of the window at the first opportunity.
    Obviously the use a bottle whilst they are driving... Then can't be bothered to empty it and bin the bottle.

    Scutters frankly.
    Thanks Alf thanked for this post

    Rapido A class

    Poo

    Surely it cannot beyond the wit of these people to be prepared and crap in a container of some type and pee in bottle which they can then dispose of in suitable place. On the other hand perhaps they are just morons who care little for anyone else or the environment.

    I expect the later, I wonder if the OP noticed fifty were UK registered vehicle or otherwise.

    On a different but similar note. I remember stopping at services on the M4 a while ago, we stopped near some grass and scrubby bushes near the lorry park to let the dog have a walk, the smell or urine and sight of what was obviously human waste was overpowering. Strange thing was the toilet facilities which were open 24 hrs were closer to the parked lories than the grass and bushes. Lazy swine springs to mind.

    That's a matter for the owner, or the manufacturer not the driver. Drivers don't always drive the same vehicle.

    Unfortunately the litter left in truck areas in Europe is disgraceful . Even where there are bins . Never come across the unmentionable stuff though

    We seem to comparing the UK to the rest of Europe, but we have a large minority of European trucks driving around the UK and I don't imagine they are totally innocent of the problems being talked about. Well I know they aren't.

    I've seen plenty of laybys in europe where you only have to go 5 metres up the verge or into woods and you're ankle deep in turd, and not just from truck drivers. Even though they do have a lot more laybys and picnic areas with loos than we have over here.

    Yes I realise that, but you would think manufactures would do something. Until then drivers could bag it and bin it.... doesn't matter which truck they were in then.
