No big deal. See that all the time in SW Florida. Does not make it right or wrong.

Just out of curiosity, it looks like the boom is in the fully retracted position. I don't know the height of the trailer or the retracted boom but I know when I move my case if I were to do that it would be close to 14 feet. Also, notice the front bucket is not on the deck and strapped down. I would also assume since the boom is up the rear bucket is not tied down. I feel like if I were to do this with my dump truck and trailer I would be sitting with the dot having a long talk about proper tie downs. It drives me crazy that they don't go after people like this. That tiny truck and huge trailer scream pull me over....

That would be funny, and he was driving slow and braking really earlier by the time the light down the road turned red

What about this?

I'll put myself out on a limb.
This is what I was hoping to move around although only sparingly.
The trailer can take another thousand pounds but I suspect the truck is over it's limit.
No equalizer but it does have electric brakes on both axles.

Evidence has been removed to protect the guilty......lol
