This is why you secure a mattress before hitting the road

A good mattress is one of the most expensive single items for the home that most people will ever purchase aside from a refrigerator. Why is it then that so many people, and we’ve all seen them, strap their new bunk to the roof of the car, with a single strand of string and then head out onto the highway, where the wind folds the mattress in half?

The guy in the video below just tossed his bed into the back of a pickup, with no ropes. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that this was going to lead to lift off. Fortunately, it just missed a motorcyclist who was travelling behind the truck on the highway. Also fortunate is the coincidence that the biker had his camera on that day!
