Hazardous Transportation

I noticed this truck plying on Shahrai Faisal during peak rush hour which carried a MEDEQUIPS shipping label affixed to each wooden crate. I wonder if the rope is sturdy enough to prevent an accidental shift in the load and maybe avoid an accident. These irresponsible means of cargo transportation must be condemned and an attempt must also be made to monitor the huge 20 foot and 40 foot cargo containers that are shuttled around the city with only a flimsy rope to tie it down to the frame of the truck. All such hazards have contributed to some loss of life accident in the past and hence as concerned citizens must make a conscious effort to keep a check on this practice

    Don’t know why this question has been raised but for the sake of clarification – this image was taken when I, myself was in the Passenger seat – notice that the labels [side image] was afixed on the right side of the wooden crates and the driver helped maneuver the car so I could easily snap those labels as well

    That is so irresponsible … forcing the poor driver to take risks for some irrelevant picture
