Alabama House passes bill to regulate hauling of steel coils on trucks

We’ve talked before (1, 2, 3, 4) about steel coils falling off trucks, and legislative attempts to reduce the frequency (training) and severity (speed limits in some areas) of these incidents.

NewsFlash –

The Alabama House has passed a bill that increases penalties for truckers or trucking companies that do not properly tie down large steel coils.
The House voted 99-0 to pass the bill that would fine a trucking company up to $10,000 for not properly tying coils on the backs of trucks. Drivers could be fined up to $5,000. Those violating the law would also face up to one year in jail.
