This is a car I passed driving from NY to VA on I95 just north of DC.
And yes they do have a couple of yellow warning lights on their "cargo"



This is as I start to pass, with some apprehension



And yes the stuff on the roof of the car does overhang the back of the car by some five feet! But to give credit it is braced and they do have yellow waring lights on it!   shocked  rolleyes
 
I really thought I'd see granny on top in a rocking chair! cheesy

I sort of thought it was Flordia plates, white with green letters and numbers plus that orange in the center.
  If it was Flordia they should have stayed north a bit longer I would think.
Might haul a load of osb and ply wood down there when the next hurricane is close to being due. Should bew able to make some money on a good load.

You had some apprehension.......

What about the guy behind you that had to pass them as well, while following a guy driving with one hand, taking a picture with the other, and sitting next to a beehive.... cheesy

Actually I had the caemra beetween both hands at the top of the wheel, using the screen on the camera instead of the viewfinder. I would have liked to get a shot of the driver. Would you believe he had a mullet?

I read an article in a Norwegian newspaper today about a truck the police stopped.  It made me think about this thread.

Great pic....

I just went to the Poconos and followed my temporary boss as he trailered 2 full bed sets. We wrapped everything up in plastic sheeting, used rachetting straps and bungies - the trailer had a high back and NOTHING moved an inch.

I pass people all the time carrying sheetrock (gypsum board) stacked 4 foot tall on top of their cars or in the bed of Toyota pickups where the front wheels are bouncing off the ground - ugh.

I too get past these idiots ASAP and keep an eye on them in the mirror, hoping they can STOP at the next traffic light, or to see if they will slam into me. It's a shame what people will do to save the cost of a U-Haul.

I like the ones that don't see a need to tie stuff down and just hold it on the roof by reaching out the window with one hand.

I really got a Laugh out of the couple who had 12' sheets of sheetrock in a 6' pickup bed. when the light turned green they took off and left about 20 sheets laying in the road and driveway.
this is a true story from a week ago.

I forgot to add that the fine in Michigan for having a non secured load is $350.00. Many of the lawn services here are now tieing their mowers down.
The couple who lost the sheet rock not only got the pleasure of loading the pick up the first time but also the second time while dodgeing irate drivers plus paying the $350.00 fine and maybe even one for placing a forein object in a road way.
