Secure Your Load

One way to ensure that your truck is pulled over is to leave a trail of debris as you drive down the highway   Such a truck is an easy mark for truck enforcement agents and police officers.

An unsecured load traffic ticket in New York City carries a minimum of $250 fine and many judges will not plea bargain them down.  Further, these truck tickets are not repairable after-the-fact by adding a tarp or safety straps.

Each compound has a different freezing temperature and physical property.When the temperature drops, diesel fuel turn solid when they reach their "freezing" point.
