Because if a strap loosened a little and it is sitting on trailer it more than likely ain’t coming off but if the tractor was hung off the back of the trailer chances are really good it is falling off

What is it?

Straps only need to hold when they are at a stop, all other times the vacuum keeps it stuck to the back. Anyone who has ever drafted a big rig knows that

Dude 70mph is 0.194 miles per second. X 7 seconds = .136 miles = ~718 FEET

No one on the planet drives 718 feet away from the car in front of them. If I remember right, drivers ed was like 2-4 car lengths depending on speed.

A car length for every ten MPH is what our instructor told us.

As long as they got the straps tight, slapped the load and then said “Well that ain’t going nowhere” they should be fine

The owner of the moving company is thinking ďwe could have charged them to move it inside a truck, and if it falls off and injures somebody Iíll face a multi million dollar lawsuit. If the driver is sued, his financial resources could be sued for the value of his car. Iíll have the DOT and state agencies looking at all our safety and training procedures.Ē

Not a good idea.

Reality sucks sometimes.

People doing dumb stuff that only harms them is their business.

Iíll bet if this plywood came off a companyís truck the owner didnít think it was funny either.

Every day, all day

Some older trailers donít have it almost all new ones have a pull out frame in the rear that they will put walk boards down and use it for extra space. There is e track style corners on the rear upright post of the trailer to use the straps.
