Policemen do not believe their eyes - trailer in desolate condition

Kreis Borken (ots) - What they saw, the police officers could hardly believe: The look under the back of a trailer revealed the frightening state in which the vehicle was. The ravages of time had been gnawing heavily at the construction. Nevertheless, straw was still to be transported - an incalculable risk that the driver and other road users were exposed to. Police officers had checked the vehicle in Borken a few days ago. Unfortunately, what they found is not an isolated case: time and again, at the time of the straw harvest, there are always trailers in use, some of which have serious shortcomings. In the specific case, the retaining straps of the spring assemblies were demolished several times, side bars and side members rotted, rusted or missing entirely, rusted the main beams, parts of the fifth wheel of the front axle partly rotted, the frame tore at several points and the trailer drawbar bent strongly - a secure connection of the Trailer with the tractor was not guaranteed. The police prohibited the onward journey and made ads against the driver and owner. The police renewed their appeal: Who uses a trailer for the harvest, should check the condition of the vehicle beforehand - for the sake of his own safety and that of other road users sake. [...]
