    Anyone hear of radio active packages being picked up? I heard rumors of a trailer setting off an alarm when entering California. My immediate thought was how many people in UPS could have been exposed if it was real.

    Maybe it was a shipment of smoke alarms?

    Good call on the smoke alarms considering the wild fire problem on the West Coast!

    Some radioactive materials are allowed.

    I believe you need a special DOT exemption to transport Hazardous Material.

    Smoke detectors have a low level radiation but when you ship 100 or so in bulk that would cause an increase in the level...:nuke:

    Noticed a tunnel in NY freshly painted, very very bright and sensors all over it. I am sure it is some sort of protection for the bridges in the area.
