Social Media Explodes For The DUMBEST Driver In Tulsa

JP Tulsa

If you haven’t already figured out what is wrong then you likely need to go and get your eyes checked. It’s actually difficult to find out what could have been done worse in terms of stacking up bricks in the back of a pick up truck. Shot in Broken Arrow, this left a lot of people scratching their heads.

Not only is the back completely wide open, but the bricks are stacked up very high and could easily fall off the sides. Any sort of acceleration at the most modest speed would cause bricks to fall from the back of the truck and likely either hit someones bodywork, or windscreen.

Furthermore, if a brick did fall out and sit on the road, this could cause a lot of damage to the tyres of other vehicles, as well as cause some nasty accidents if anyone was unfortunate enough to hit the brick on the floor or swerve around it to avoid it.

This scene has had Tulsa residents asking whether the sequal to final destination was filmed in their city, or whether this is just a terrible driver.

Sadly, this is not the first, nor last incident either. Local Tulsans know that dangerous driving like this is all too common in the city. It is not an abnormal site to see a pickup truck overloaded with pallets or furniture drive at high speeds on the freeway. In other words, if you have lived here for any period of time, you will have seen multiple accidents just waiting to happen.

Here are a few potential violations related to overloading a pickup truck (note that the above driver is likely guilty of all 3!):

  1. Overweight Vehicle: Operating a pickup truck that exceeds the maximum allowable weight limit can lead to an overweight vehicle violation. The weight limits are determined by Oklahoma state law and can vary depending on the type of truck and the number of axles.
  2. Overloaded Cargo: If the cargo or load in the pickup truck exceeds the maximum weight capacity recommended by the vehicle manufacturer or exceeds the load securement requirements, you may be cited for carrying an overloaded cargo.
  3. Improperly Secured Load: It is crucial to properly secure the load in your pickup truck to prevent items from falling off and posing a hazard to other road users. Failing to secure the load adequately may result in a citation for an improperly secured load.
