    Thanks for your post Triplex,I do see a fair amount of this type of rollovers with trash haulers.
    You've got to figure that trash is not to stable if you don't drive so it doesn't shift around.

    Those loads must be heavy compacted since garbage cos spend the money on all aluminum trailers to maximize weight per trip.
    Not to mention high center of gravity...

    Supposedly more than 1,200 tanker roll overs each year! This probably is not as risky since no slosh.
