Wow, a lot of bad days in this video. It's amazing how many of these appeared to be pro drivers. You'd think they would be more careful about this type of thing. My favorites were the 5th wheel campers that just shaved off the A/C units.

That is hilarious!! Did you notice how many of them were Rented trucks or RVers? When you don't drive trucks everyday, and have gotten used to a certain route or are in a new place, this can sneak-up on you and bite you in the A$$

I rent Ryder trucks several times a year (13.5ft high) and they used to have a "Wall Of Shame" Polaroids of returned trucks. It was a good reminder!

What gets me about the RVs is, they seem to keep on driving without thinking they just cleaned their roofs off.

As long as that has been going on, I'm surprised the city or county where that is hasn't lowered the road way to keep it from happening. OTOH, it isn't like they haven't marked the bridge with flashing lights, big signs. It SHOULD be no surprise it's that low.

I love that video, funniest part is the 2 cars colliding and one running into the pole that holds the flashing light up


Anyone notice the light flashes only when your truck/trailer is to tall? Best parts are when they skim that bad boy and keep it moving like nothing happened
