@edgarblythe,
Yeah, that's part b) above. Shouldn't they know the height of their vehicle?

@Mame,
Likely they go under so many bridges that look just like it that they fail to notice.

@edgarblythe,
Again, driver error.

@Mame,
But if manufacturers made the trucks to fit under the bridges it wouldn't happen.

@edgarblythe,
Well, without special permit, tractor/trailers are limited to 13'6" if I recall correctly. Maybe civil engineers could design to that standard. Of course, if the driver of a dump tries to clear a bridge with the dump body raised, that's on the driver.

Sure. I meant box trucks.

@edgarblythe,
Or maybe those bridges could be higher, or at least arched. But I think it's on the drivers. They should know the damn height of each truck they drive.

That would be a bridge too far.

No bridges are likely to be rebuilt because no money gets spent on such things except in the more dire situations.

This is funny and covers a bit of area and takes you back... I mean, who hasn't watched some of these silly shows?

@Mame,
The first video, 60 Photos to see before you Die, had some I've seen already but some important ones I had missed.
