This is honest to gods truth, last year I was hauling those left over concrete blocks they make for like $60 that are 3 foot long used for retaining walls to a customers house. As I was waiting to get loaded, a old woman and what looked like a drug head pulled under the concrete shoot in a s10 and they opened it and they had concrete poured in the back of the truck. The assend of the truck was on the ground.

i watched a 3 guys in a ford ranger try to get 2 tons of blacktop. they made them sign a liability release and did it when they dumped the asphalt the truck went down and never came back up before they dumped it there was a skidloader siting there in front of them with a chain to drag them off the scale. ya think they would of figured they were in trouble thensadly it would of been the best time to have a camera or a video phone but i didn't have one then

none of the quarries around here will even touch you unless you're in a 1 ton with a flat/dump bed. Poor truck, must be one of those "everything on TV is real" guys

WOW, insane stories.
Yeah here in central New York, our local quarries don't let you in unless you have commercial plates. One of the quarries has a "shovel your own load" area. I've gone past that area watching guys shovel stone in the trunks of their car, back seats, unreal looking home made trailers....oh yeah I've seen a lot of good stuff too.
