Is this a gag? If not that is the scariest thing I have seen in a long long time.

What we used to use is a shackle through the hole that the ball bolts through so the shackel pin goes through the hole and the shackle itself goes through the lunette eye.

That picture with the shoe lace looking string is for pulling wire through conduit it is flat so you can tape it to the wires your pulling through underground plastic pipe.

As for that being safe I don't think so I hope they got a good fine for that.

I'll bet the cop pulled the plate and then took the pic....:)

At least they tied it down....

They should fine the crap out of Verizon! And deport the Illegals on charges of felony stupidity!

Can you imagine the consequences Verizon whould have faced if an accident had happened because of that rig?

-Hey Mark, didn't someone at TruGreen have a trailer come off once? I want to say a manager too.........they put on brakes to stop and watched the trailer go by them?? Someone was telling me that when I was there.

todd, I don't remember about that....May have happened before I got there. But with 4 branches in the area and 20 trucks at each branch, its bound to happen....

Who said Verizon HIRED them?

They said they worked for Verizon.

Maybe they were stealing the trailer with the fiber optic line. (I believe fiber comes in yellow for Verizon, orange for AT&T)

And as most of us know, bumper hitches are not legal in most states.

Granted they were probably "independant contractors" Verizon or AT&T or whoever hired them should be held to higher standard.

The roll you saw on the trailer is called innerduct the stuff on the hitch is called muletape, it is used to pull the fiber thru the innerduct. But as far as Verizon or AT&T they are not responsible for any accident or anything that would have resulted because of this, that is why they hire contractors

yeah but...any lawyer worth a few bucks an hour would name everyone in the suit, from the driver of the truck to the person/company who hired the contractor...That way they get their hands in all the pockets and provide more work for their fellow lawyers.

Personally if myself or a family member were injured by this moron, I would hire a team of lawyers, along with a team of PR people. and believe me I would get into Verizon or AT&T's pocket one way or another!

Here's the full story:

Pittsburgh is really cracking-down on trailers ever since a wood chipper broke loose and killed a father and 2 kids last year.

And the wood chipper story:

Well when a trailer comes loose at 15 mph and mows your kid down at the bus stop I bet you would have a different attitude.

And safety on the highway is what i was screaming about in another post about lifted trucks.

Jacked up trucks pose a much greater threat to the safety of motorists than any loose trailer.

actually I have been close to having a trailer hit me

I was going north on a road and a truck came off the interstate heading east on the feeder road and hit the dip there at the intersection and his compressor came unhitched doing about 50 mph and skidded on the jackleg in the front right through the intersection in front of me and hit the median to my right

it was pretty crazie :laugh:

is that a joke?




i mean, i see the potential with lifted vehicles, but a loose trailer is nothing to NOT worry about!

The police around here (Pittsburgh) are really checking out trailers with a fine toothed comb. That wood chipper accident hit the news big time. And it was sad - the kids were 2 of 3 triplets.

Since then my friend got a $380 fine for not having his safety chains crossed.

These illegals were just lucky they didn't kill anyone.

Around my area if your caught without the proper safety restraints on your trailer they have in the past impounded a trailer due to unsafe conditions.

That was when I worker for a wrecker company years ago.

Went and picked up the after affect of a boat that was suppose to have a 2' ball and was being pulled by a 1 1/2 ball and it just missed a school buss that was about to unload.

26 foot ski boat being bulled by a mid 80s k5 blazer.

Dude just sat there looking at the kids in shock and he told me after we cleaned up the mess "Man I could have killed those kids and never thought the trailer would jump off the ball because I was going slow". I was thinking to myself Dumb A@@.
