Don't tell Mr Dennis, but look what they did to his truck! The tank was in the order of 3500 - 4000 litres, so little wonder the firies had to hit the siren and lights occasionally if they went into an intersection and couldn't pull up in time!

Yet another example of a fire service creating a threat to life and limb by overloading a chassis which was never designed to carry the kind of load it ended up having to cope with.

This kind of stupidity not only affects braking, but also damages power train, steering and suspension components and tires, just asking for premature and possibly sudden failures - which can be just as dangerous.
