From Massachusetts State Police:


There is a right way to transport construction equipment.

And then there is this.

Just before 8 o'clock Tuesday evening, a Trooper assigned to the Nantucket Barracks came across this sight on Old South Road on the island. 

Needless to say, this represents a public safety hazard. Because to answer the question in the headline, there are a hundred ways things can go wrong here. The Trooper issued the driver a citation for having an unsecured load. 

Unsecured loads are bad. A good rule of thumb for everyone to remember. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
