    There seems to be a plethora of flatbed drivers that lack the ability to properly chain down their load.

    No special endorsement or test needed for flatbed. That may change if this keeps up.

    Ahhhh that makes more sense. I remimber i glanced at one yesterday but couldnt remimber where or who was involved. I hope for the skateboards sake that the failure was something out of his control like a chaindown point sheering off and causeing a cascade failure not laziness.
