    Glad something is being done. Over the years I’ve seen so many trucks with cubes of cinder blocks with nothing more than a layer of drink wrap on the top row securing the load. No ropes, tarps nothing. Saw a hole load fall off on corner of middle road ans store hill a few years ago that missed traffic on the other side by inches.

    Years ago all loads were secured and also covered. Today almost nothing

    Not to mention, loads with power tools on top that are already too high. They used to get tickets back in the day
