  • So that's what the delivery charge covers...
  • Audi? More like OUCH-di, amirite?
  • Should have let some air out of the tires.
  • "Thankfully nobody was riding in the cars on top of the hauler."

    Like that's not uncommon.
  • Those Audis are always in the shop getting something fixed, aren't they?
  • That Audi got turned into an innie.
  • We have a bridge in our city that is hit constantly. There are signs every-farking-where approaching it in bright as fark yellow saying LOW BRIDGE "11'7". Like clock work it gets hit at least 2-3 times a year.. And it's not like it's an optical illusion, the shiat is farking low and for whatever reason 18 wheelers go plowing through and get ripped open.
  • Another professional driver showing their skills.

    Would that be this bridge?

    I was gonna say "OW-di", but I'll just settle for shaking my tiny fist.

    *shakes tiny fist*
  • This happened here in Milwaukee about three weeks ago. I suspect that someone doesn't notify the driver that his haul is slightly over the normal max height, and he didn't realize he needed to pull off for a slightly low, but still tall enough to be unmarked bridge.

  • These Audis were just getting a head start on their future of blatantly ignoring any and all road signage.
  • And nothing of value was lost.

    I have a solution that wouldn't cost much...

    A plywood board across the bottom of the bridge and a new official height of 8 feet.

    I'd love to have the inspection contract for that bridge. Lots of billable hours :)

  • I dont understand why cities see trucks hitting bridges like this all the time but they dont do anything about it beside putting up signs.

    We have a low railway bridge like the one in the video posted up thread, but it has two sets of lanes. One is normal, the other had been carved out into a ditch so higher vehicles can still pass under the bridge. How hard is that for a city to do, especially if it would save so much money for everyone involved?

    Came here to say this.
  • unless they changed it, the trucks I have driven have all been 13'6" if the sign was less than that you didn't attempt it. I know oversized loads are a different matter you have to get permitted and such.
  • That'll buff right out.

    Imagine the feeling of hitting a bridge with a train crossing it with liquid containers of christ-knows-what ready to fall down on you sorry stuck ass...

    From what I would understand it, it would be immensely difficult. You'd have to move all of the pipes, and thats assuming you could do so without getting a massive bow shape in all the sewer pipes, water lines, gas lines, ect. That is in addition to having to grade the new road smoothly,for hundreds of feet in each direction. THEN deal with drainage issues. You don't want it to turn into a lake after every rainstorm, do you?

    When I was a kid this bridge was a killer. Before they fixed it there was a short steep grade on each side. If the trailer was long enough the tractor would fit under the bridge just fine and then the trailer would lever up into the underside of the bridge as the tractor climbed up out of the underpass. We would walk out onto the bridge and look down into the trailers with their roofs ripped off on a weekly basis.
