Footage of a car driving along an Auckland motorway with a load of timber hanging off the back has been posted online.

Commenters are highlighting the dangers of driving big loads without securing them appropriately.

The video was uploaded to the Facebook group "You know you're in west Auckland when...." by Vincent Ieremia yesterday afternoon.

Ieremia says he spotted the car heading south on SH16. The car then took the Lincoln Rd offramp towards Henderson.

The video was filmed around 1.30pm on Thursday.

"Wow, if he stopped in a hurry it would all go," a Facebook user commented.

"He's putting a lot of people in danger," someone else said.

Ieremia says the car was travelling at about 80km/h.

Another Facebook user in the same group shared a photo of the same car, later spotted travelling down Lincoln Rd.
