Josh Martin seems to think so... https://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news/976 ... too-common

I guess it depends on what size it is & probably the prop design.

Because nobody could ever weaponise a U-Hall truck by filling it with amonium nitrate and diesel then driving it to a Federal Building and detonating it... nah, that would never happen.

Try driving a U-haul truck thru the front door of the Beehive.... compared to the Cruise Missile described hereabouts. No wonder they're spooked!

....although that latest BOOOOM!!! on the news tonight suggests a truck on Bowen or Molesworth Streets could knock a severe dent in NZ's politicians. Yes, there are a lot of alternatives but don't include the US. As noted elsewhere, the claim "nothing can be done about it" comes from the only country where nothing is done about it.
