Diesel News keeps an eye on trucking in the Twitterverse and brings you this week’s highlights. We have Tweets from the NHVR on the road, loading hay in the USA and another truck rollover in the news.
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator was back out on the highway again in its charm offensive, communicating one-to-one with the truck driving community, this time in Goondiwindi:
Plenty of good discussions with #truck industry @NHVR driver info day @BP_Australia Goondiwindi with @TMRQld #RMS NSW and @QldPolice. Here til midnight so drop in for a chat. Thanks #BP for having us again. pic.twitter.com/0PPyLWt607

This is how they load hay in the US. The question Diesel News would like to ask is, how do they get it out at the other end? Tip the trailer up and shake it?
“This is how they load hay in your trailer in California. They just keep pushing the bales forward until they stop, then they know you are loaded. After getting loaded, you will gross LBS 79500 or more.” -Randy Twine pic.twitter.com/usL9buRHmU

Yet another rollover, they are one of those incidents which make for a shocking image and are never good for the image of trucking:
