Next time you see someone towing or hauling something wrong take a picture and post. If they over loaded, hauling a 20' board on a 6' bed, towing a 10k trailer with a Ranger, hauling a tractor not chained down or what ever share it.

I saw this little S-10 Saturday with a few bags of concrete on it a Chick-fil-a. The guy came out, counted his bags and left. I think the truck probably road all the way home on the bump stops. He was also parked in the space backwards. I guess he drove in the parking lot the wrong way and backed in.

That is a nice log, and would make lots of boards. Maybe he can use some of them to shore up that bent frame.

This happened in my area about a year ago. The bridge was posted at 6 tons. Its a very rural bridge and I had crossed it a few days before this happened to it, and it almost seemed like the half ton pick up I was in was too heavy for it. And yeah, the concrete truck was loaded with something like 7 yards of concrete.

That would not be a fun ride.

I am suprised they did not get pulled over.

I know a guy that pushed his truck up the road with his van last week about 3 miles.

I saw a guy with a little Toyota truck with a single axle trailer and a Ford Escort on the trailer. He was all over the road.

I pulled into a gas station and waited for him to go by and got a decent picture.

Couldn't snap a picture in time but a few days ago I saw a similar combo leaving the salvage auction yard. Lead car was a totaled but drivable Trailblazer pulling two other cars ganged together with tow bars. Not even legal to drive a salvaged car on the road like that without an inspection, let alone 3 at once!

I so WISH that I had a picture of this. Couple years ago, near Christmas time, I passed a guy in a beautiful new crew cab dually, pulling a beautiful new (approximately) 24' 5th-wheel. Strapped to the back, with a couple of clean, new 4" straps - and I mean dead center on the trailer - was a beautiful new Fisher Price Barbie Power Wheel Jeep. Nothing else. Not a single other thing. Just that pink Barbie Jeep sitting proudly as any high dollar load, square over the trailer axles underneath a couple of pristine yellow straps.

I knew some lucky little girl was going to have her heart soon overfilled with a Daddy's love.

I wish I had a photo, but I was driving. Saw a truck the other day, couldn't have been more than a half ton, squatting to the stops, front wheels nearly in the air, with a full pallet of field stone in the bed. I couldn't believe it. It had to be 3000 lbs at least. And this wasn't some new half ton with a huge payload either, but an old farm truck.

Eight years ago I was driving north on US 61 when I saw a cloud of smoke and fire ahead of me on the southbound side. As I got closer I saw a Ford Explorer with a trailer engulfed in flames.
The kid was going down to LSU to start school and had his boxes, particle board furniture, mattress, etc. on the trailer. At some point he must have flicked his cigarette out the window and it landed in the trailer and caught fire. Funny and a **** shame all at the same time.

Where was that? I don't remember hearing about it.

That's a good video. I'm guilty of getting complacent about trailer height too. Here at work we have a 2 car enclosed deckover. Its easy to forget that its which is taller than the average car trailer and has roof vents as well.

A couple times while on road trips in urban areas I've sailed under low bridges out of habit and a moment later asked myself "wait, how tall was that!?"

I saw guy yesterday pulled off on a exit ramp with the back hatch up on his SUV and a sheep in a cage in the back of the SUV:eek:

There are some guys in my area that have one of those trailers. They go down the road with a fire in it all the time. It smells good as they go by but what if they got in a wreck and overturned the trailer.

I've got a friend who transports his alpaca that way--in the back of a minivan, no cage. A sheep in a cage in the back of an SUV is no more unsafe than a dog in a cage in the back of an SUV. An unusual sight, but nothing alarming about it, at least to me.

What about the fecal matter from the sheep, that is why I thought it was odd.
