    Too funny. To bring home $50 worth of pallets, he's probably done $2000 worth of roof body damage, and who knows what else. Is it me or is he actually driving with a space saver spare on the front?? (note to self: If I've overloaded my car so badly that a tire blew, putting on the spare and continuing is not the thing to do).

    Probably a repost but oh well.

    Rear shocks punctured through. Home Depot manager made the guy sign a wavier too. Guy has cement bags in the backseat also.

    All he needed was a good roof rack & some bungees & it would have been fine. Idiot(s).

    Koffer,

    this is the reason:

    nj state troopers will stop something before it happens (proactive police)

    southern troopers will watch and wait until something happens (reactive police)

    AT least we don't have people who return 60k Suvs because they cannot use the big Diesel nozzle at truck stops without spilling it all over themselves. :flipoff2:

    This is what happens when you go to other states where the fuel is not as cheap and you have to pump your own .
    I also know not to use the big rig nozzle as all you get is foam :doh: :D
