    As dumb as they come... Transporting a 12 foot ladder in your car
    The picture says it all.
    This was taken on Interstate 59 in Houston.

    Sheesh, that's as bad as the guy transporting 8 foot 2x4s on his motorcycle and had them tied on sideways as well.

    I hope that ladder is for outdoor use and storage, because its owner might have a hard time getting it through doors!

    If you want to keep people like that off the streets, forward that picture to HPD.

    Is this ladder pic for real, or a photoshop job?

    Reminds me of playing fetch with my dog, an Australian Shepherd. I throw out a 6 ft long stick, he grabs it, and I try to catch him. With snow on the ground, sometimes I can. He loves hauling around the big stick. Sometimes he runs along, like the car in the picture, and hits two trees on both sides of him.

    Doing the physics here. If he hits something on his right, the ladder may snap off. Or it might pull through enough so then it can whip violently right over where the driver's head is. (or used to be) Ouch.

    He's hard to see, but there's a guy in the back seat sliding the ladder to the left and then the right as cars go by!

    As far as I know, I do not think it was photoshop. Got it from a non PC literate person..
