No need to worry about the odd mad bulldozer driver on the Motorway. I just remembered the Air Canada passenger jet running out of fuel in mid-flight . . . . . . "The subsequent investigation revealed corporate failures and a chain of minor human errors that combined to defeat built-in safeguards. In addition, fuel loading was miscalculated through misunderstanding of the recently adopted metric system, which replaced the imperial system". English to French - 'lost in translation'!?
