I have been wondering about this lately, who or what defines an "insecure load"  isn't it only insecure if it comes off ? We strap our loads but I know from experience that if I have to brake hard sometimes the pallets can collapse rendering the straps pretty useless.

A load can be strapped down but still an insecure load, here's a good example

What a complete plonker- the bloke filming it more or less walked right under it- don’t reckon it’d take much more momentum for the kit to go on its side.

There's a code of practice, essentially the restraining sytem has to be capable of resisting the mass from moving forward with a force equal to its weight, sideways or rearward with half that force.

I hope the poster was arrested by the spelling police for writing “bails”!

 

where it says he was prohibited from moving, presumably that was only until he put the straps on which were in his cab.

I know many of you have seen it before,  but still worth a look in the overloaded section.
