Trailers - tie that load down please!
What is it with some of those idiots who refuse to tie down the load they have thrown into their trailers?
In the last week I've been hit buy a huge sheet of rubber (the size of a double bed!) at 80kph and had a narrow miss with a sheet of MDF flying out the back of a trailer at 100kph!
The rubber sheet hit directly above my head - I almost crapped my pants, so did the HSV driver directly behind me as it smacked into his grill! Luckily no damage to my car but I was rubbing rubber off my roof for a good 10 minutes (it actually melted onto the roof on impact!). As for the MDF, luckily there was a spare lane and I could take avoiding action. This thing was flying straight for my windscreen.
For gods sake, tie down any load. I don't want to have some cop explain to my children how mum or dad died by a piece of MDF taking off our heads!
Not too much to ask?
