This photo was taken last Sunday afternoon on the streets of Trondheim in Norway.
Saab 9-3 Convertible is located in the left lane, which could mean that the driver drives at a speed of 80 km/h (50 miles per hour). This may be a practical, but certainly not safe – Shelf can be blown away by the wind! This driver found it convenient to carry a shelf in the back seat of the car.
At 55 miles per hour, an object weighing just 20 pounds that falls from a vehicle strikes with the impact of half a ton. I will remind you of this case – Ice Sheet Smashes A Saab’s Windscreen At 70mph.
Always remeber: The security of your load, your life and the life of others relies on proper load restraint; Use a vehicle and suitable restraint equipment appropriate for the type of load you are carrying; Position the load correctly; Check your load restraint immediately before leaving and during the trip; You are driving under different, more difficult conditions when you are carrying certain types of loads…
Drivers need to think about safety first by securing all loads and by reporting drivers who do not. If you see an unsecured load or something in the roadway, please call local law enforcement. Never attempt to clear road debris yourself. (photo by Adressa.no)
