On this morning's traffic report, the speaker warned motorists of an overturned tractor trailer on the east bound lane of the Schuykill Expressway (leading
to Philadelphia). The cargo was a load of beer, and the road would be
closed until the beer could be "offloaded." The term offload (off-load)?
was repeated several times by others on the radio and on TV, leading me to
assume the term was used in the original report.
Has anyone heard this term before?
