This was in my neighborhood a Trucker crunched his trailer on a low bridge in Brockport,NY.

    Brockport is a small village just west of my village,it really has been a long time ago when other truckers misjudged the height of this bridge.
    It is clearly marked with signage far enough away from this bridge to use streets around it.
    So when a trucker hits it I always think 'Go figure?

    Maybe a chance for Coop to hire another driver before Swift gets him.

    No Comprende Inglis = No Requirement to Read, Write or Understand English to drive in U.S.A.
    13' 6" no compute in metric conversion, same as American Speedometer.
    It's The Northeast, (and apparently according to MANY "truck driver training schools") ALL OVERPASSES are a minimum 13' 6" (regardless of clear signage) until otherwise proven, so that bridge, like countless others, will be slammed again and again.
    Signs of the Times!
    - - -
    It Swift-Knight, not single entities of Swift or Knight.
    NO DRIVER having slammed into a low Overpass, Rolled a Combo or had a Severe Accident, Crash, Wreck with/without Injuries as well CONVICTED of Drunk Driving a C.M.V. or Car (in the last 5+ years) is available to get immediately hired at another Carrier considering OUR Driving Record follows US and Public Info IS Public (however with this coddling society, anything is possible).
    CHUCKLES off the air......end of line
