Re: Important!!!!!!!!!!! Cover your load!
Yes, I am 100% in agreement. I've had 3 close calls in 12 months. First was a huge piece of flat rubber that came off a trailer and bounced off my roof. Fortunatly no damage but some rubber marks just above me drivers seat!
Second, less than a week later following another trailer and decieded to move off to the left 2 lanes. Just as I get into the lane of choice a huge piece of masonite flys out the back....some other poor sod got nailed in the exact position I was 20 seconds earlier.
3rd and most scary, traveling beside a truck then the truck in front loses a FULL sheet of platerboard. It hits the truck beside me and showers me in plaster. I hit the brakes and about 10 meters ahead the FULL chep pallet he also lost (and I didnt see cause it went straight up and I was looking at the plaster board) lands in my lane and explodes into a million pieces. I crapped myself. If it hit the roof or bonnet I would have been dead!
COVER THE DAMN LOADS PEOPLE!
