    A definition of WLL is: Working Load Limit (WLL) is the maximum working load specified by the manufacturer. This load represents a mass or force that is much less than that required to make the lifting equipment fail or yield, (known as the Minimum Breaking Load - MBL)

    ONCE, getting out of Baltimore, MD., North Bound, Driving for Bulldog Hiway Express (wooda bin like 2000), coming off the east side Loop, Empty, Granny Lane, Construction, got onto 95 and a Right Side box, on Trailer (??) or Truck (??) flew OPEN and I snatched a few glances to see Chains, Ratchet Binders and Straps go sailing into the Jersey Wall. Trailer hit a few pieces yet Tires survived.
    I stopped about 1/2 to 1 mile up (where the Jersey Walls ceased) and quickly determined that the incredible RISK of Re-Acquiring all the stuff wasn't worth My Life.
    Dispatch agreed and the supplies were replaced.
    That was the ONLY TIME I ever "Lost anything" from a Skateboard!

    Thanks 4 Reading!
    CHEERS!!

    YES!!
    The real finalists are those that cause harm or death on Highways and offer/give no concern as if the Innocent Humans were "in the way".
