    "Officer advised that the driver thought the load was heavy enough to not be strapped down. Not a single strap was used."

    They must have looked like really heavy 2x4's.

    It can if the wood isn’t treated. Some wood can lose structural integrity if it gets wet and it isn’t sealed or treated-it’s worthless at that point and a very expensive claims write off.
