Like clockwork.

Another truck spills a steel coil on Birmingham interstate

I think it's time to start loading these things flat. It's a pain to have to do that because of the extra steps necessary to lay them down and pick them up from a flat position, but this is getting ridiculous. The article says 24 have fallen over the past twenty years, and you figure it's only a matter of time before someone gets killed.

Steel coils and stacked pipe on flatbeds are two of my bugaboos on the highway. I give them a very wide berth and go past to put distance between me and the potential disaster.

Crushed cars and logs are a couple of my bugaboos. I also don't like seeing those trucks with piles of scrap tires stacked up really high.
