Forgive me, you’ll have to use your imagination for this as I couldn’t safety take a photo. I was driving down a local road in NJ at 45 mph when I saw a compact or mid-size sedan approaching from the opposite direction. Sticking out way, way into the air was a rather long extension ladder.
If you’re thinking that the ladder was strapped on top of the car’s roof, think again. The ladder was sticking out from the sunroof. Maybe 3-4 feet of the ladder was inside the car, resting against and partially supported by the rear seats, while a good 8-10 feet (or maybe even longer!) projected up and out at a 45° angle.
I understand that there may come a time when one needs to be creative in how they transport large items from point A to point B, but there’s a limit as to what’s considered reasonable. It was hard to tell, but it looks like the guy was traveling at full speed with no blinkers.
