    I've done a lot of truckdriving in my time. And that sort of thing never ceases to amaze me.
    Do they think the flashing warning lights are there to alert other drivers about how freakin' awesome they are?:eek::rolleyes::D

    My question is, who is the genius driving the SECOND hay truck?

    you would think with the number of trucks that have done that...they would dig the road down a foot or so...much easier than raising the bridge

    Billy Bob thought that hunkering down in the seat would make all the difference.

    Wow, just wow. Gotta friend who drives truck so I had to email him this one. He measures his loads all the time down to the inch. I guess others aren't quite so meticulous or they just don't believe in reading signs.

    Just throw nails on the road before the bridge, trucks get flat tires, ride lower, problem solved.

    Actually, where I used to work, a liquid nitrogen tanker had to do that (deflate the tires) when he got stuck under a catwalk

    I like the bus losing its A/C.

    But seriously, that's obviously the only bridge round there that's not 12' - all those vehicles are not clearing it by a whisker ... as above, lowering the road by 4 inches would be much cheaper than all those flashing lights.

    When the dip fills with water and freezes, we're back in business.

    Most of those trucks are leased, rented or recreational, definitely not locals.
    No excuse for the hay bale guys, especially the second one.

    There used to actually be a low railroad bridge in my town that the city dipped the road under for more clearance. We had a really nasty storm about twenty years ago, and the dip filled with water. And yes, some doof in a 4x4 thought that he could make it through if he hit it fast enough. He was wrong.

    How bout making the bridge clearance say 9', with a post or something, so all bigger trucks has to go through somewhere else.

    They need a road/height sensor one mile previous to the bridge telling them they can pass or not. Seems cheaper than fixing the bridge and pissing off everyone else.
