Another overturned bee truck.
After the news story, in the comments there is discussion of who tightens the straps; the driver or the beekeeper.
Of course I tighten my own straps if it is my own truck.
But when I hire out, the truck driver is responsible for the final tightening of straps.
Yes, I stand alongside and critique, but out of worries about insurance issues if there is a problem, I always make sure that it is VERY CLEAR that the trucker is responsible for securing the load.
I also make it a point to talk with the driver about how massive of an impact losing 408 hives would have on us. (17 rows. triple stacked)
