Turkish truck drivers delayed at one of the most important border crossing cargo stations of Central Southern Europe, Fernetti, on the Italian-Slovene border, have installed fixed satellite TV dishes to kill time, the International Transport Association (UND) says.

According to statement released from UND on February 18, the truck drivers at Fernetti, suffer major delays due to the insufficient Ro-La (truck transport with railways) services.

Drivers say that they have been living in their vehicles inside of 'Fernetti semi-trailer park' for five days and they have installed fixed satellite TV dishes to kill time.

As a comment to the satellite dishes' installation, the President of the UND executive board,  Fatih Sener said that the satellite dish clearly represents the miserable situation that these drivers find themselves in and he expressed that the UND will closely follow the situation and take steps towards a resolution of the delays.
