Here's an Article About The Incident.

The traffic stop was in Canada. It didn't say what charges were filed.
A different article said the driver was charged for an oversize load violation.

Wow..just wow. Why would you go thru the trouble of rigging an air tank and that "hitch" when you could have hired someone to move the trailer? I bet the fines are more than paying a legit OTR owner/operator.

I wonder if the driver could have gotten away with it if he used a farm tractor as the tow vehicle?

I seen something similar between Winnipeg and the border. A 1 ton Dodge hauling grain in a similar fashion.

Why is it always a Canadian? Almost makes me want to move.
