Why?

Why are there those little warning signs on the tires? Were they afraid somebody wouldn't see this huge piece of mining equipment? Or the big truck with its' lights on that's hauling it?

Not to mention 4 flagpersons, 3 supervisors, 2 pilot vehicles and a permit that costs enough to pave the road.

Because it is probably driving in Florida, the state where one old guy actually drove off a runway, yes, a RUNWAY because he thought he was on the interstate. God knows what he would think if he saw that thing coming at him.

And what might be my word verification?

"DIESS"

LOL!

I spent a year in Florida and it was crazy. Frequently, I heard news reports about old, deaf, and blind people driving their cars into canals, shopping carts, and Piggly Wiggly's. In Florida, the more flags the better.

Just imagine the lawsuits that this would bring in the courts... I can just see Lowell "The Hammer" Stanley screaming about it now.... You really should see his commercials... he'd sue a pig for making bacon!

Knew a guy once in Modesto that didn't see the train in the middle of 9th st. Depends on what kind of drugs you're on as to what you can't see.

Yeah, I remember the guy, and gal. It happens all the time here in our lovely town.
Did I mention I also remember the drugs?

It's actually in Aust, Queensland to be specific. The flags on the tyres are for night (black against black doesn't show up very well)

Stapylton, Queensland, Australia. We don't really use Volvo's over here to pull anything huge with. Places like Savage use modified utes without the dumpbeds (and a hitch) for really bit stuff, and sometimes another truck as well to pull and a few in back pushing. That's the setup for the big autoclaves in the mountains anyway.

BTW, the things on the tires are just to let the average moron to know they're oversized. Something that big generally don't move at night. Not in the states anyway.
