What's it like to drive "on the bell"?

The reason I ask is that we have a lot of big 11, 000 and 12, 000 liter tandem axle tankers here in the US, and they have a very unfortunate safety record.

Although they represent only about 15% of the national fire truck fleet, they are involved in over 70% of accidents - including a large number of single vehicle rollover incidents.

By the way, I was born and grew up in Darlington, but we had nothing like this back then!
