I want to start a new driving gesture for pulling a load...



Okay. I'm sure the title made that clear as mud...

You know how people flash their lights if a cop is ahead? What if we had a sign to give fellow outdoorsmen to say, "Hey, your load looks good."

I'm pretty sure the international sign for a flat tire or loose starp is waiving frantically and honking, but I'm thinking a thumbs up or something will ease the drivers mind. I know I constantly worry about and watch tires and straps when I'm pulling a boat or trailer full of 4wheelers and ice chests.

Or would this all be like tapping your foot in a public bathroom stall?

This would work in interstate situations and other 4 lanes.

Yeah, do you try to inform someone if they're dragging a strap that could possibly wrap around the axle causing catastrophic failure? If you would, why wouldn't you toss them a thumbs up as you pass them if everything looks good?

Wouldn't that be like saying "hey your shoe's tied", "excuse me, but your fly is up"

I could see how this would be helpfull. I wouldn't practice it though. If I'm staring at the trailer he's pulling I'm liable to accidentally veer off course. And if it "looked" ok but really wasn't you just gave him a false sense of security

That how I came up with the idea...

I always look over peoples loads when I pass them, because I myself know what it's like to strap something down and say, "Let's see if that holds!".

I will not be partaking in this practice. However, if I see your shite flying all over the interstate, ill let you know. If I make no such notifications, keep on as normal.

If I see your shite flying out, I will get out and evaluate the quality of your lost goods, then decide whether to let you know.

You wont find my shite on the side of the road. I know how to use tie downs properly.

Nah I live in a manufactured home. I got my van bc I didnt want a note, and I could pay cash for it. It's pretty sweet.



It needs a little work, but she runs like a top.
