Life on the move Q&A Darren Moody answers readers’ questions Dodgy trailer loads ... Hi Darren, Has R ACT ever approached the issue of uncovered trailers and over-loaded vehicles in Journeys magazine? My reason for asking was that this morning when travelling into work I saw four different instances that really concer ned me. All of them were big 4WD utes with trailers. Three of the four were so overloaded that the front wheels of the vehicles were lifting up off the road. All of them were carr ying loads of wood and not one of them had the wood covered. I watched in horror as two logs came bouncing off the back of one of the utes onto the road. Fortunately I was far enough away not to be hit by one. One of these utes had a chainsaw and a jerry can of fuel that had just been placed on top of the wood and not tied down. This is a big safety issue on the road at this time of year! Cheryl Shoobridge Hi Cheryl I agree with what you are saying – ‘wood-hookers’ often take substandard vehicles into the bush, fill them to the hilt then create safety hazards for other road-users getting them back to town. All drivers have a responsibility to ensure their trailers are loaded properly and securely, as well as not exceeding the carrying capacity of their vehicles. Enforcement needs to come from Transport officers and Tasmania Police – I will discuss the issue with them both. Darren 40 August / September 2011
