Can I transport this length of lumber in my pickup?

It's obvious here on this forum that many people do stupid things. The problem here is that you have many people telling them to do stupid things.

Well I tied the lumber together and to the ruck bed and extender in 3 places, and flagged it, and made it home safely.

Interestingly a police car followed me for awhile and then went on by. I guess I passed inspection.

Also notable that the cop seems like he was waiting for the stuff to fall off so he could ticket you, instead of pulling you over to see if it was ok

+1 on this one... it's like a moth to a flame...

This winter I carried a snow blower strapped to a hitch platform, I was AMAZED at how many would ride just a few feet off from the back of it cruising along at 30MPH... it's like they were waiting for it to fall so they could file a claim...
