Authorities Say Secure Your Load Or Face Fines
Are you hauling something to the landfill? Or doing some moving?
This is secure your load week in the Washington State. According to the Washington State Patrol about 400 vehicle collisions happen every year in in the state because of unsecured loads that leave debris on the roadway. Patrol officials say while this is secure your load week you need to remember to secure loads everyday of the year. If your load falls out of your vehicle and injures someone you face fines up to $5,000 plus jail time. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says road debris contributes to more than 50,000 traffic collisions, 9,000 injuries, and 125 fatalities every year in the U.S.
