It is a huge fine for semi-tractors to not have their load secured properly and
yet very seldom do we ever see someone with a pickup load or a car trunk load
secured. This is just awefull, people should realise that even if you are
traveling less then a mile you need to tie down your load. (Even if you
don't care about others, at least you may want to get home with the item
you have purchased.)Please tie things down for the safety of everyone on
My comment is not all that important, but did you notice this? The article
states:"Someone has come forward saying they lost a mattress.
The driver is being questioned to see if they are the owner of the mattress that
caused the fatality."So the person who came forward, is she a
she or is he a he? No, they is a they.We are very correct these
days, for if we knew they was a she or if we knew they was a he, we'd also
know a name and an identity and possibly defame . . . them (the driver).
I applaud the driver for coming forward and reporting that "they" lost a
county momMonroe, UTI do not know how many times I have had a
gravel truck throw rocks onto the road while I am driving.They always have
the same sign about staying 1/4 mile behind them and they are not resposible.semis are not exempt-innocent when it comes to dumping stuff onto the road.
