Crazy fake news actually. Says multiple times in the article that the load is "unsecured" when, in fact, there is no less than three chains on there.

That guy might deserve an award for getting so much on there so he reduced trips to the scrap yard and lowered his carbon footprint...even if it's a Darwin award. LOL

Hmmm, was that you Albertabuck???

I would say the crime is hualing those cool old girls to the scrap yard. Maybe they aren't neat up that way but would think sombody would want some parts for a resto.

fined only 2000 dollars, I say throw the book at him, book him dano! That's one of the reasons why we have to take that insane driving test for number one licence because of numb nuts like this and the dumb asss that caused the bus crash. Most farmers are way better experienced drivers than some of the twits on the road these days. Please red neckers have some common sense for the love of god., lucky no one got hurt from this.

$2000 fine and $150 in scrap. That sucks. The fuel in his tanks is likely worth more than his load, truck, and trailer.

As a crazy Canuck redneck myself, I hesitate to find fault with this creative trucker.

It does look like he made the effort to squish the back end of the Versatile enough that it was close to legal height.( Or perhaps the overpasses did it for him, either way, it served the purpose).

If the tickets were for insecure loads, I would question how they would stand up in court. IF there are enough straps/chains per item, and nothing loose, then there is a lot of subjectivity involved beyond that in deciding what is secure enough and what isn't.

If it was for over dimensions, truck/trailer not meeting standards, or paperwork, then so be it.

But, in Alberta( and I have asked multiple times), as long as it is farm machinery, most of the overdimension etc rules are irrelevant, until you take down a powerline at least. A commercial vehicle can haul farm machinery of any dimensions without permits or pilots. Those look a lot like farm machinery to me.
