Provincial police remind drivers hauling loads that they must be properly secured.

Late last week, police in Caledon pulled over a pickup truck that was spotted transporting a mattress in the vehicle's bed.

The officer stopped the driver near Mayfield Road and explained that the mattress wasn't adequately secured.

In a post on social media, provincial police called the incident a "mattress monstrosity."

Police say the insecure load could have had serious ramifications.

Driving with a load that isn't secured carries a potential fine and vehicle impoundment.
