    Today's Eleven feet eight inch video

    I think I'll start posting a new one every day for a while. There are hundreds of these on the 'net.

    There's a few out west, too. As well as some that are not only short, but narrow enought that it is difficult for two cars to pass, much less a couple of trucks.

    Watched one wack a bridge on I-95, closing 2 of 3 lanes for months. Kinda cool watching him ahead from an 1/8 mile behind him. A huge backhoe on a flat bed raised all the way up but well chained down. Saw it coming as his load was ridiculously over height and knew the driver would be fine if seat belted. I was first on the scene and already had the highway patrol on the way. Had to be a half if not a million dollars to repair.

    Dumb A$$es.

    I think they are raising it to a more standard height as we type.

    Something similar just happened in CT. It was the unfortunate driver's first day
    on the job. Threw his two buddies outta their bunks, and onto the floor of the
    cab.

    This happens all the time around my area. Truckers use to delivering know which routes they have to take but we have the Fracking going on and 1st timers driving. Some of the companies have a scout car running with the trucks. They have a pole fixed to Guage if load will make it under obstacles. Some so close they let air out of tires to clear. It's daily that they are stuck. Many of the roads around here are impossible to navigate for big trucks. They have to be assisted by wreckers just to make hair pin turns. One truck a few weeks ago bottomed out and trailer frame dug into the asphalt on turn. Blocked the highway all day. They had to unload with a crane before wrecker pulled it free. It's a PIA to get around because you never know when you are going to have to back track to get around stuck trucks.
