Idiots on the road...

I couldn't resist posting these photos, even though they're not Airstream or trailer related. My wife consults for an oil-field safety consulting company in Houston, and one of their employees sent these in.

I think the driver needed a 'wide-load' permit!

The problem is, it may be an innocent pedestrian or other motorist that gets decapitated by this FM.

Where are the police when you need them? I can get pulled over for driving 5mph over the limit, but people like this never seem to get caught. At least I feel smarter now!

I fail to see anything very unusual or surprising in the photo. After all it's a Texas driver.

Here in New Mexico we know how to drive more good and would never forget the bungee cord.

Why didn't the driver and passenger just hold it next to the car with arms out the window like us smart fellers do?

This should be one of those posts that start out with "Don't try this at home......"

Thanks for sharing!

I'm afraid you've all missed the real point of the picture. It's a non OSHA approved ladder made of aluminum that the driver used too close to electric lines.......Worst of all it's not polished to an Airstream shine.

Bungee cord? Isn't that what y'all in Neu Mexico use to jump off bridges with? Heck, we know how to use 'em here in Texas... Keep the bumpers from falling off... sho'nuff!
