Truck Inspections, Wanganui

On our way home, we noticed huge road trains lined up near Countdown, Wanganui. Upon further observation, it seemed like police or community volunteers and some authorized inspectors were checking with the drivers. I assumed the checkers were also scrutinizing the load and the purpose of the load. I also thought that the trucks were being checked in terms of having a WOF. There has been a recent incident wherein a truck's wheel flew off while its traveling on the Auckland highway. The truck's wheel hit a bus with several people inside. The bus' windows were protected with a 2nd coating against UV (I think) and that might have saved the lives of the people on the bus. It's a shock to have that incident happen in NZ.
