Ever find yourself at the end of a day/job loading up crap on a trailer, thinking “Oh hell, it’ll stay. Do I really need a strap over it?” Short answer: Yes. Yes, you do. I saw the above video on the Today show the other day and tracked it down to post it here because I know I’m guilty of sometimes leaning a little on the hopeful side when securing a load. This video reminded me how stupid that can be.
Thankfully, it turns out the woman driving wasn’t injured. But seriously, folks. Pay attention to what you slap on a trailer or in the back of your truck haphazardly. Almost anything becomes an unpredictable missile when it ends up bouncing down the highway at 70 MPH.
