Not always, sometimes I also escort loads on my own. But usually there are several of us driving different vehicles, each performing its own individual task. I drive a Sprinter van, which is classified as a transport escort vehicle 3 (BF3). I safeguard the transported load from behind, acting essentially as the truck’s mirror. I make sure that everything seamlessly fits on all sides when we’re driving in the countryside. When we’re on the highway, our transport loads typically require two lanes, so we’re in charge of making sure the truck has enough space. First and foremost, we deter cars from driving by too closely or too fast. There are also other transport escort vehicles on the team. For example, BF2 escort vehicles primarily drive in front of the truck to warn other drivers to watch out, primarily on highways. This generally requires the use of a rotating light. BF4 escort vehicles can be used to cordon off roads. This often involves three cars, which drive ahead and make sure the roads are empty so that only the truck can pass through. Traffic signs that we can switch using a system in our vehicles help us a great deal in all our tasks, e.g. “Warning!”, “No overtaking” or “No overtaking for trucks”. BF4 vehicles can also set speed limits, display arrows or “No thru traffic!”. We use radios to communicate on the road and let each other know if a car wants to squeeze pass, for example.
