When a truck is hauling cargo, before it hits the road that cargo is typically secured to prevent it from becoming loose during the trip or falling off of the truck completely. However, certain types of cargo can be more difficult to secure than others, mistakes can happen, safeguards can fail and debris can fall off of trucks while in-transit. When this occurs, it can cause problems for other drivers on the road such as hood and windshield damage, accidents and even injury or death.
