Added 2 more straps, to front and back.

Good for you!

We can't help ourselves - we have a "knead" to be noticed.

Found a wealth of knowledge and advice on this site that has helped tremendously. As I walk around the parking lots I'm always noting other flat-bedders methods, and of course we all see some suspect methods. My question is given the number of straps used in the picture, could the driver have improved his securement?

Every driver will have their own ways of securing something, some good some bad.

BUT, it seems this driver simply forgot something here. I'd have another belly and top strap (white). The front belly would eliminate the need for the middle (yellow)

I would have added at least 2 straps over the top in the first ten feet. If them pockets are 2 foot apart It don’t seem like he got 2 in the first ten. If it’s the back of the trailer he might not have one in the last ten.
