/ Unsecured hay hauling #71
Have you tried STATE highway patrol?I travel a narrow 2 lane State highway in Arkansas 3-4 times weekly to my rural place in Ozarks. it's a busy highway w/o shoulders & blind curves.
lots of round bale hauling without any securing, they say gravity will do the job...that is until control is lost around a curve to oncoming traffic
& would make short work of me, etc. local law enforcement shrug it off like the haulers. so what are your state hwy laws on hauling unsecured tonnage on similar roads in your area. to be honest, it is annoying to see, but hey, don't like to offend the red necks (another safety hazard)
not tried State Patrol, probably the best bet for enforcement. i hesitate since they have such a challenge today in terms of funding & public sentiment. i appreciate & respect their service, so i'll hang in the shadows.Have you tried STATE highway patrol?
And that’s the whole point of this exercise. There are some folks out there who hate farmers. They want their equipment to be taxed or not even be allowed to traverse roads from field to field.Well that is 1 person since 2010……does not sound like a big problem. It sounds like the biggest problem is you just dont like farmers……but without them, we starve. If you cant stand being around farmers, you will need to move.
any accident, farm related or otherwise, that can be prevented with a few extra precautions, is worth persuing.And that’s the whole point of this exercise.

How could farming and food on the table happen if they were in charge?
The pictures and articles about improperly carted hay are real, but few and far between. Typical of people today who only focus on the small minority of the bad in a group and not the vast majority who do things right.
