Default How close?

How closely would you want to be to this guy? Imagine if he hit the gas or nailed the brakes. I didnt see a single strap holding down that pallet of stuff. Good thing it'* winter, that'll keep his speed down.

Actually.....Those types of pallets are pretty sturdy....but I wouldn't do that if I was going more than like 2 blocks........Hopefully he ain't driven NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series around town.

i have stacked empty pallets like that and driven around town like that, but they were strapped (most of them anyway). That is concrete, he would have to stop pretty hard to get that to go anywhere.

although the shrink wrap is done properly, i still wouldnt want that on a pick up truck, then they have the nerve to put it on top of some wood to make it more top heavy? All he have to do is turn real fast and he would roll the truck over. They should have just waited, or took the wood out.

Yeah, I would say chances are that stuff isn't going anywhere but I wouldn't want to risk getting too close and finding out differently.

Looks like blow-in cellulose insulation to me. The individual packages are too big to be concrete.
