Captain McMurphy was detained.

 

Nurse Ratched retrieved the crew on their own recognizance.

By the way, there are a lot of these on the interwebs. A brief search of Google Images turns up these gems.

Likely considerably more than that.

I was on a vintage tour up here in June and watched a fellow tie down his car with the $0.99  cent straps. I loaned my extra straps for his trip home after explaining he may not have needed his trailer as the car would end up in the back of his truck.

It is a sad statement (and post) but I know many of us on here haul from time to time and I know many are smart enough to realize the post was meant as a reminder to go through a thorough safety check before hitting the road with over 15k lbs in most cases. Buy the right equipment for the job and leave yourself plenty of space at a safe speed.

All's it takes is one mistake....

 

Be safe out there guys 👍

When you are on the highway watch when a motorcycle is being hauled and look at the straps being used. I have noticed when ever I see it they are inadequate tied down most of the time.

What's the most accurate two word caption for the first picture?

That white truck was likely repairable depending on age and mileage at the time.  $20,000 might be too much.  Replace the cab, tailgate, hood, other misc parts.  Those things + labor are not $20,000.  

 

This is reminds me of the RV salesperson I spoke with the other day.  People buy these new trucks with gigantic tow ratings and come to the RV dealer wanting (and buying) the biggest one they are told they can tow.  Scary for the rest of us.

Bernie, Bernie, Bernie,

You know that the most obvious two word caption for the first picture will be removed by the censors immediately upon posting.

Why would "Oh My!" be removed?

Geez, I just found out that happened about 35 miles from me. First responders attended to minor injuries on the site. A passenger was reported as very agitated and kept repeating something about "the ship". Once bandaged he ran off into the bushes.

Adequate tie down straps are very often overlooked safety items.
