  • How long doess it take to get an update? I have reported this issue directly with OCC and made more than 10 reports. I have received from OCC an acknowledgement on 12th Noveember saying they will reply to me but still no update. And STILL the lorries keep coming past. Its time to give me a real and meningful reply.
