We’ve commented on this situation before. It seems to be progressing (slowly) through the courts. Does anyone understand why they load the coils eye to the side rather than eye to the sky?

Officials in Alabama have been seeking a solution for a public safety hazard in which 22-ton coils of steel produced by the company’s Fairfield Works are falling off of flat-bed trucks in the Birmingham area. In the most recent case, a truck traveling the interchange from Interstate 59 to I-20 on Oct. 2 lost a steel coil and the 22-ton roll of metal struck and damaged a freeway retaining wall. There were no injuries in the incident, but there have been three such security failures, involving a total of five coils, since June alone. On June 8, a motorist was injured when her car struck one of the fallen coils.
