Caterpillar Wedged on a Truck in Abuja with Stones! by Abee79: 9:36pm On Apr 22, 2016
I saw this truck plying the Airport Road, Abuja this evening. Is it safe? I don't know such things but there is something strange about how this Caterpillar was wedged on the truck with just stones!

It passed right in front of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) who were controlling traffic at the City Gate - unchallenged undecided

A very dangerous and careless attempt to transport that equipment, that is a walking disaster, any sudden braking, acceleration, or ascension of a hill by the low bed will send the equipment tumbling freely to the rear or front as the case may be occurs. Very reckless I must say.

the only thing unsafe are the stones themselves, they could fall off and cause accidents. The vehicle in there has the option of leaving it in gear (first or reverse) or parking brakes. If I remember well it is automatic so parking brakes.

I don't think it's going to fall. I've been looking at the picture for about six hours now, it hasn't fallen yet. Still looking. I got this, I'll keep everyone updated. The picture should change when the tractor falls. I'll watch the whole day to see how this ends.

weldone physics teacher. Any sane human will NOT ascend any hill lyk dat. I see no reason to panic because the stones placed at all corners of the tyre would certainly not aid motion!

Not surprising, for a people who don't really attach much value to other people's lives. Much care isn't given to safety and standard procedures.

Now, I have witnessed on several occasions, in other countries (Africa inclusive) where vehicles are transported on the beds of other trucks.
Even mere salon automobiles that are much lighter than this tractor, ARE NEVER TRANSPORTED THIS WAY, WITH MERE STONES AS WEDGE!

All that is needed is for that truck to hit one of the many potholes in our roads, and the tractor comes tumbling down. Next, we blame the devil for any casualty resulting from the accident.

Safety is about applying standard practices to prevent accidents, not mere attempts or half measures.

No OHS supervisor to ensure things are properly done - that's one major problem here.
The driver should actually be booked for allowing this to happen.

The stone are only an extra safe measures . The weight truck cannot even allow It to move wen the engine is off and am sure the truck must be in a parking mode already.

But wait oh. Who is more foolish here? the truck driver or the man leaving his steering to take pictures that cant give him a second chance to life. Is it worth the risk? Just asking.
