This Overloaded Car Transporter Looks Unsafe

What is it with China and safety? We've all seen pictures of that apartment building laying on its side, and a building fell into a sinkhole just the other day.

Then there are the roads. For people younger than 45, traffic accidents are the leading cause of death in China.


Maybe this video of a truck towing a trailer overloaded with small trucks is a window into why. Call me overcautious, but there's something about stacking multiple three-ton objects on top of a tall truck that makes it seem much more likely to topple over. Er, physics? Also, did you see the back end, with two trucks hanging out over the back of the trailer supported only by those skinny little steel beams? Scary.
