    I never haul them suicide unless I have to load them that way by shipper or receiver requirements. I've seen covered wagons under secure, but most of us do what's required to keep a coil on the deck where it belongs. Yes we do it quickly, but that's because our securement is already in place.

    He either strap it or use 2 chains(one for each side), regardless, it was incorrectly secure like said.

    Coils dont just "fall off" trucks. Please use the right terminology. For example. Driver failed to secure their load.

    The way they word it. Makes it sound like it just happened for no reason. Unsecured load kills driver would be a better title.

    All "Covered Wagons" I ever saw either rolling, parked, being loaded/unloaded had thick D-Rings on the Deck.
    I never, in my short time with Skateboards, pulled a Covered Wagon.
    During my short time I preferred Suicide Load as it was easier to "over Chain" as well Tarp.

    I will continue to "give lotta room (as feasible)" to Skateboards, Covered Wagons and Heavy Haul!
