    I like the guy riding around at night with no trailer lights. Where are the cops when you need them?:confused:

    No no no you guys are ALL wrong. He is not doing anything wrong. He is trying to do the right thing. He's using the plywood to keep the walker from sliding off the back! If only he had a ratchet strap to hold that board on there then everything would be kosher!

    err....wow.

    You know, funny story though. One time I told my self that I was going to teach myself how to arc weld. Well I decided to teach myself by building gates on a huge 22ft long equipment trailer with those type of ramps. I just added on standard expanded metal gate portions to the insides and took off down the road...well... i must of used the wrong type of rod or something cut about a week later i lost one half of my ramp in the middle of the busiest intersection in the city and didn't notice until I was at the next house 15 minutes away. that was embarassing to pick up....

    There was an incident near where I live where some guy was hauling a full size chipper through a main part of town. The chipper was not properly secured to the truck (chains crossed...proper size chain, trailer brakes...usual safety stuff we do with out a second thought) and it broke free from the truck. A father and three sons (two were twins) were headed the other way. After the impact only one of the infant sons was still alive.

    That police department and the state troopers in that area have been merciless on trucks, trailers, inspections, and weights in that area for almost two years now.

    They have gotten countless unsafe vehicles off the road and made numerous arrests of illegals (many w/o a license at all), drug dealers, and jerkwads that make us look bad.

    I drive through there frequently and get many look overs, but never stopped. It pays to keep your stuff legal and safe.

    It's not worth anyones life to save 35 seconds and not strap something down.
