Dodge Ram With Unsecured Trailer Is How Final Destination Happens in Real Life

Police departments around the world never spare any effort in warning cargo haulers to not forget about securing their load, for their own and other’s safety. But no other warning is as loud or potentially effective as this one.

We’ve covered car news from the Canadian province of Alberta before, from the scarecrow tactics used by the police to deter speedsters (basically, carton cutouts of actual policemen), to a Kombucha-squirting windshield wiper and a man who legally declared himself a woman to pay smaller insurance premiums. Alberta is occasionally the Florida of Canada, and the latest incident also helps with that impression.

A Dodge Ram pickup was pulled over by the Sheriff Highway Patrol, after they noticed it was pulling a mobile 印象彩票app下载 that was far too heavy and too long for the trailer it was placed on. They did not expect to find what they found, which ultimately amounted to 21 different road violations, a hefty fine and an impounded vehicle, a post on the offical Facebook of Alberta Sheriffs says.

Not only did the mobile 印象彩票app下载 exceed the tires’ weight rating by 3,000 kg (6,613 pounds) and was unsecured to the trailer, but the trailer itself was not in any way secured to the towing pickup because it had no locking mechanism. The trailer also had no brakes, because brakes are for suckers, apparently.

How this thing was able to roll down the highway without an incident is a miracle on its own – and goes to show that real-life accidents like those in the highly-popular and now-defunct Final Destination movies can – and do – happen.

In total, cops found 21 road violations, including an expired registration on the Dodge Ram. They issued the driver a fine of 3,800 CAD ($2,817) and had his pickup impounded, in addition to using the traffic stop to ring the alarm on how dangerous such improvisations are. In other words, let the pros do their job when you’re not qualified for it.
