4: Vehicle Loads and Loading

Loads must be properly distributed and not piled too high.  Loading must be such that the driver has clear vision to the front, sides and rear.  When necessary, loads must be blocked, tied, flagged or padded to prevent shifting or damage.

All loads transported on trucks and/or trailers must be properly secured and distributed, and limited to a safe operating load for driving conditions.

When it is necessary to unload from the street side of the vehicle, extra care and precautions should be used.  Whenever possible, work should be done from the curbside.
