    Whoever loaded that should be sacked. It's a drivers responsibility to see that his (or her:rolleyes:) vehicle is loaded safely and securely.
    That load (and the sheeting )is a disaster.
    Although, I'm embarrassed to say, I did once get 'done' for an insecure load, on a tanker.:oops:
    I hadn't made sure to manhole lid latch was fastened, first time I braked, load swilled and shot the lid open, result?? a lot of black heavy oil all over the road and the aforementioned tanker. I was lucky to keep my job.:(

    P.S. I shouldn't be talking about work, I'm retired, I don't DO work.:)

    It's never been an easy job to move such loads and full credit to those able to master the skill.

    Nah. The idea was to snap the lamppost and then load it on top for the 'scrappie' as a Driver's bonus.:Finger:
