Mess On Our Roads

Video of sludge spilling on our streets was captured by two individuals yesterday.  The rig hauling the material didn't have any license plates. 

LareDOS wrote up the incident.

Though the driver was in CDL compliance, the trailer filled with his nasty cargo was not. It had only one brake working instead of four, and, according to the LPD inspector, the trailer box and its shape “was not made to carry liquids.” He said the trailer had no cover, that it was filled to capacity, and its seals were cracked or broken.
The city, county, and UISD are thankful for all the revenue that's coming from drilling, but we get stuck with having to drive around this liquid waste, and public crews have to take time out of their busy schedules to clean it up.  Minor details to endure when "nothing's as precious as a hole in the ground."
