Holy shit and every other curse word PittGirl uses on the blog and in her head!
In an attempt to address the cause of that horrific accident in April when a truck driver didn’t properly secure an industrial wood chipper that flew off and struck a van, killing a father and two of his triplets, Stephen Zappala’s office ordered on the spot inspections of commercial trucks.
They stopped 66 commercial trucks yesterday and guess how many had violations?
All of em!
The article details these particular ones:
- 25 didn’t have their loads secured properly
- 2 didn’t have safety chains
- 2 were driving with suspended licenses
- 4 for inspection violations
- 4 for misc. code issues
- 2 people were arrested for having outstanding warrants
Stupid truck drivers and truck owners of the Burgh … listen up here.
l was once behind a pickup truck that spit out a garbage can that due to my kickass driving skills, didn’t go through my windshield and instead just dented my door. Those bastards didn’t even stop. Just kept on driving and left their garbage can in the road.
PittGirl does not want to be driving behind a truck carrying a massive piece of equipment that I can’t even identify but if I had to guess I would say had something to do with reaching the center of the Earth, and then have that equipment break away and land on top of my SUV, squashing me flatter than Paris Hilton’s chest.
There are several ways that I am willing to die, and getting squashed flat by an errant piece of industrial machinery that you didn’t take the three minutes to tie down is NOT one of them.
Secure your shit. God.
