    Default You know what ticks me off???

    These dump trucks that rumble around town spilling rocks and crap out of their beds, but they paint a little sign on the back that says "Stay back 500 feet, NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BROKEN WINDSHIELDS".

    So, if I hang up a sign on my door that says "Kids should do what I say, NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CHILD ABUSE!", am I safe?

    If it makes you feel any better, those signs are bull****, Indiana law requires dump trucks to cover their load, and "leaking" loads that lead to damage are absolutely responsible.
    "I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post."

    I was gonna tell you what Marion Deputy told you. Unless something has changed they are in fact responsible. It very well could be their insurance company no longer covers them for this but the sign is just there to keep you from calling them.

    It's probably also a hint that getting paid won't be easy.

    The real question is... Why doesn't DOT enforce the rule about keeping their loads covered? Many (most? all?) dump trucks have an AUTOMATED cover. They flip the switch and the load is covered. It doesn't keep every piece from flying out but it helps a lot.

    Actually, I just agreed with you in hopes that you would thank me, so I could say:

    "Not a problem."
