A load like this would have the state police/CHP they talk about in the article and front/rear/side to basically form a rolling roadblock whenever
they felt they wanted to as well as security response somewhere nearby and out of sight. The cops probably don't know where those are for sure.
A few guys I've known in trucking hauled DOD and US Treasury loads under escort and the security is intense. There is no possibility...NONE...of the
truck doing anything it wasn't meant to do ...and the guys chosen for that are the best. Not necessarily by accident record or by paperwork
compliance score. Like you note, you don't want a bookworm driving that who can spot a logbook violation at 10 yards, you want the guy who doesn't
lose a load ..ever..and never says he's gotta hold things up for a personal issue of any kind.
At 25mph max speed, it's also not doing much for being a hazard. Ice? Oh...people should be so lucky to be behind THIS thing in a snow storm. lol....
It's sheer weight would breakup anything formed on the roadway.
I'm just surprised at the location. I know of depots in other states for waste and not all headlines on CNN..altho nothing secret really. I hadn't
heard this one tho... Learn something every day.
