Man cited twice in a week for truck piled too high
Police in Massachusetts issued two citations in one week for overloaded pickup trucks. The surpising thing was the drivers were the same person. In the same truck.
Massachusetts State Police made the first stop on I-91 in Springfield when spotted a man driving a red pickup stacked high with furniture on June 20. They explained that his load was precariously stacked and also his tail light and license plate were obstructed. The officer wrote the driver a ticket.
Five days later, a Chicopee police officer pulled over the same driver for hauling branches stacked nearly as high as the furniture and also blocking the tail lights and plate. Second citation written.
Chicopee Police Department posted photos on Facebook with the title “FROM THE FILES OF SOME JUST DO NOT GET IT.”
The department concluded the post with this note for drivers: “If you have to carry a load in your pickup truck, DO NOT DO IT LIKE THIS. And, if you ever see something like this operating, call, so we can stop it, before someone gets hurt.”
