Flatbed truck loses load at the 11foot8 bridge


Last Tuesday, a flatbed truck with a tall stack of insulation on the bed tried to go under the 11foot8 bridge. Guess what happened. Exactly. This is “crash” #84 since April 2008.

  1. This wasn’t even close to fitting under. Does anyone know which of the 84 was over 11foot8 by the largest amount?

  2. 2 things 1) The current sign doesnt work and its the city’s fault. Bigger warniong signs and severallof them. also 2) Huge red TRUCK STOP sign outlined with flashing lights, with an automatic cam triggered when a driver taps the bridge. Sign placed one foot in front of bridge so when uninformed truck drivers go they are going too slow for damage and are photographaded and ticketed $500 for hitting the bridge.

    • ok 3 things 1:they have a big sign with FLASHING RED LIGHTS WHICH ANYONE LOOKING AT WHERE THEY’RE GOING CAN SEE EVEN IN POURING DOWN RAIN.
      2:ANYONE NOT SEEING THE SIGN AND NOT KNOWING HOW TALL THEIR VEHICLE IS, IS BY DEFINITION AN IDIOT
      3: THEY CAN GO A FEW BLOCKS SOUTH AND CROSS THE TRACKS WITH ANY TRUCK THAT WILL CLEAR THE STANDARD HEIGHT POWER LINES

  3. since April ’08 1 craqsh per month is wrong and to not do something to fix it is your responsibilty. Where is this again? Raleigh NC?

    • well they did put up flashing lights and a sign that say STOP YOU MORON, YOUR TRUCK WON’T FIT UNDER THIS BRIDGE. If the don’t see the flashing lights and can’t read the sign. what should the city do? Should they buy everyone smaller tucks? Post a sniper who could shoot out their tires so they will fit? They can’t raise the tracks because they would have to shut down the line. they can lower the road because of the sewer lines. Here’s an idea, instead of blaming the city, the drivers could go a few blocks south and cross the tracks there where there isn’t a bridge.

  4. HA HA! It’s not the city’s fault! Many of these drivers (I know not all) have what is known as a CDL. Part of getting this type of license is a Driving Test. AND THIS VERY THING IS ON IT! There are just way too many blow holes who don’t pay attention. They’re playing with their radios or cell phones or just plain stupid! Love this site! It’s hilarious to see the stupidity of others.

  5. They should look at installing this:

  6. I’m wondering if any unseatbelted drivers smashed their heads on the windshields in some of those very sudden stops.
