Nantucket Driver Cited For Having Unsecured Tractor On Truck

NANTUCKET (CBS) - A state police trooper has cited a Nantucket driver for having an unsecured John Deere tractor on his truck.

"What could go wrong (#Nantucket edition)?" the Massachusetts State Police tweeted Thursday, along with a photograph of the heavy equipment seen unsecured on Old South Road around 8 p.m. Tuesday. 

Troopers used social media to warn of the dangers of transporting unsecured construction equipment.

"There is a right way to transport construction equipment. And then there is this... Needless to say, this represents a public safety hazard. Because to answer the question in the headline, there are a hundred ways things can go wrong here," the department said on its Facebook page.
