this is what is called "failure to properly secure a load" which is what the cop says as he is writing the largest ticket you have ever seen.

No citations from VSP or DMV. The loads were secure.

Traffic cone placement has been called into question by DMV. Not enough travel width for the truck and trailer.

The cones were set up by a paving contractor on I91.

ok, so the contractor placed cones on the interstate for the paving and the lonestar driver tried to negotiate them and failed? I wish someone in the media had said that. The only stories that I saw made it sound like the driver caught and edge and the improperly secured blade just fell off.
