He should have followed their advice and gotten a bigger truck!

Do have to give him credit for saving it tho'.

Bet the first thing he did when he got it stopped was change his underwear and then get out and get on his knees and say "Thanks" to the Man Upstairs.

But he broke that fence and crapped his pants probably.

That was a great save for sure.

Agreed- I don't see the point in mentioning weight police at all other than to be rude and pick a fight. But, at least there weren't the idiotic "anti-diesel" comments for a change.

Likely to light ....
But it could have had a high heavy load as well.
