Ferry company Stena Line installed cameras on the driveways to its ferry to England in an attempt to easier spot stowaways trying to sneak to England by climbing onto the axes of trucks, AD reports.
According to the company, this measure is not only for preventing people illegally crossing to the United Kingdom, but also for safety. So far there have been no accidents involving a stowaway on the axis of a truck. "But it's life threatening", Marcel van der Vlugt of Stena said to newspaper AD. "What if you fall from the axis? Then you're under the truck."
