Exxon-Mobile Hauler Goofed Before

Residents of an eight by four block area in East Chicago, Ind., experienced water pressure so low, that in some instances, nothing came out when they turned on their faucets for about two days. The inconvenience  followed a July 21 accident where cargo being hauled by Mammoet to a BP Refinery fell.  Read a Tribune story about the accident here. Mammoet is the company ExxonMobil/Imperial Oil has hired to move its 207 megaloads across Idaho. BP supplied bottled water to those affected and placed portable restrooms and hand washing stations in parks and streets, said Brian Marciniak, director of operations for East Chicago’s water department/Elaine Williams, Our Business, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Would you trust these guys to haul megaloads for ConocoPhillips?
