Over­loaded lor­ries still rule the streets

The Borneo Post - - HOME -

LAWAS: Driv­ers over­load­ing their ve­hi­cles with oil palm fresh fruit bunches con­tinue to be a cause of con­cern as they are en­dan­ger­ing the lives of other road users.

One such lorry was seen at Tru­san Road here on Wed­nes­day car­ry­ing a huge load.

The driver not only over­loaded the lorry but also ig­nored other safety as­pects. He only used a small piece of can­vas to cover the load. Sev­eral fruit bunches were also seen fall­ing from the lorry onto the road.

This ir­re­spon­si­ble act is re­gret­table be­cause the safety of other road users is of­ten taken lightly, pri­ori­tis­ing profit in­stead. The au­thor­i­ties con­cerned are urged to take note of this be­fore big­ger prob­lems crop up.
