Watched the whole thing and I think I laughed every single time someone hit the overpass.

I wouldn't. I wouldn't get a damn thing done. Each time I saw a vehicle in my field of vision id be glued to the events unfolding

What does that do to the integrity of the bridge?


quote:

So frequently do trucks crash into the 11-foot-8 clearance trestle, that the railroad company installed a crash beam in front of it. This massive steel I-beam bears the brunt of the impact, protecting the structure that supports this fairly busy railroad track. Believe it or not – they already had to replace the beam once!

This is why you take out the insurance on rental vehicles.



quote:

Will insurance cover the damages?

Most truck rental insurance policies specifically exclude overhead damage from coverage..


The FAQ on that site was really good.

Why Can't they raise the bridge? Would cost millions and close a busy line down for months to re-grade.

Why can't they lower the road? Sewer main is under the road.

Why don't they have a bar fifty feet ahead with heavy chain? Because tall delivery trucks need to turn on Peabody street right before bridge.

There is a bar to take crash impact and warning lights. Say that's all they can do.

Something tells me that Budget knows exactly what happened when you call or pull into the location.

re: 11Foot8 bridge crash compilation


I saw a lot of Penske trucks (which should be a pretty penny to repair)

It made me think of the lower loading deck advertisement on the back of the uhaul trucks Image: http://www.designtheplanet.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/uhaul_truck.jpg
