    Translation: some spit-for-brains four-wheeler pulled out or turned in front of them. I'm glad the people in the truck were okay.

    So the four-wheeler was responsible for the load securement?
    I agree, if you mean the driver who failed to secure his load properly.

    I didn't say anything about load securement, my comment was about the reporting on this matter.

    Sorry, I didn't see anything about a four-wheeler in the article. It said "braking incident," which could be a four-wheeler cutting them off or slowing traffic or realizing too late that there's a stop sign or red light in front of them.

    I'm glad they weren't hurt, but this one belongs in the Flatbed Hall of Shame.

    I’m guessing you are not familiar with double T’s. A hard braking event will rip the imbedded securement points out and or break the concrete piece in general. They are just as dangerous as coils in my opinion.
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.

    I’m talking about the idiots who continuously cut off trucks with little to no room to spare.. that behavior is what I’m talking about..
