This was an excellent find tutone710.
Now this video should be required at every truck driving school nationwide.
Also every trucking company for their new hires.
Then we wouldn't see so many future bridge hit posts.
Thanks tutone710 for sharing.
I have known of roads being resurfaced under an overpass that raised the roadway but nobody thought about changing the clearance sign till an unsuspecting driver hit that overpass. I can't fault a driver when he drove under the overpass with the same height trailer before.
Summa na bitch! I really like the one at 5:40 where the changed lanes then stopped right in the middle of the road. He deserved it.
Dash cams can really save your butt in a situation like that.
Dash cams are worth the investment. Last year in a construction zone near here the Interstate narrowed from 3 lanes to 2. A woman missed an exit & was backing up on the highway when she was hit by a car & then a truck. The woman tragically was killed but the dash cam clearly showed the car was backing up in heavy traffic.
Those dash cams put you right in the action.
I remember years ago an old heavy equipment guy told me he worked with a young drag line operator some what hard headed & wouldn't listen to advice. The old guy said he would never forget seeing a body with 5 yards of crushed rock on top of it in the cab of a drag line.
Any machine that has moving parts can be dangerous.
I can see why there are dash cams in so many foreign vehicles there are so many rotten drivers.
The best of Road Rage. Pay attention at 10:44. OUCH.

Oh my so many hit & runs,cars & people,wheres the compassion?
The guy in the loader must have been high on something,or really ticked off about something.
Our world is getting crazier by the day.
Was hoping we could stick to commercial crashes on this forum.
Not that every type of crash is something every driver needs to be aware of as they venture out.
I'll leave your videos tutone,however lets please stick to the commercial crashes,after all this is the trucking board.
Not 4 wheeler & 2 wheeler board,not bashing your contributions to this forum,which I do really appreciate,Thanks
Let's stay focused.
