Cane Trash

A few years ago the was a lot of complaints about cane falling from cane trucks, the dangers it posed to other vehicles and the mess it left on the side of the roads around town, the sugar mill told us that the price of sugar was so low they did not have the money to fix this problem and the government approved a free pass for them to continue driving the trucks with unsecured loads, now the price of sugar is very good but they still don't seem to have done anything about the problem, if this was me heading to the tip with a load of leaves and branches falling of my trailer I would get a fine, dose anybody else have a problem with this, also I would like to know what would happen if a piece of cane fell from a truck and hit a motorbike rider and caused him to crash or hit a child on the side of the road in town, who would be responsible, the owner of the trailer, the driver of the truck or the government for allowing it ?
