Spotted this vehicle northbound on US 31, made a right on SR 44 towards downtown Franklin approximately 4:41 PM today.

Noticed that it had a full load of gravel - visible above the cargo bin - and was leaning severely towards right.

Also that it had no rear license plate. Later observed no plate on front of vehicle either.

Vehicle stopped at city parking lot project at S. Water & E. Monroe (next to City Hall), began to back in, was directed to proceed to materials site at old Oren Wright Building location, which City now owns.

Observed vehicle backing in to unload approximately 4:45 PM. Proceeded directly to my home and called Franklin PD to report.

Also called ISP. Had difficulty with a dispatcher, wound up speaking with Corp. James, who said he would notify Commercial Vehicle Enforcement.

DOT # 759632, Parks Trucking of Lexington IN. Apparently sub-contractor on City of Franklin project.

Hey, guess I was on to something there: That truck sat in the same spot at the dump site (see pics) up until the morning of Monday Dec. 10th - 11 days! Just looking out for public safety, folks, always glad to help.
