Probably the same tradie who’s wheelbarrow fell out his trailer on GDE the other morning. Luckily the driver in front of me managed to avoid it and I did as well. Tradie just kept driving seemingly oblivious – more likely he CBF stopping, didn’t want to deal with irate motorists.

There should be greater penalties for unsecured loads falling off utes and trucks. Imagine if a motorbike hit the wheelbarrow or the sleeper.
