    I have crossed under many a 13' 6" bridge in my time...I slow to 5 mph and hope I just bump it but have always made it under...BUT to SLAM into a 11' 8" or another 11" bridge without so much as touching your brakes defies human understanding...

    Seems to be more & more truckers who are clueless when it comes to judging over head heights.
    A simple moment to think will my 13'6" box make it under a 11'8" opening in good shape.

    Just that little bit of time to figure out that equation,as opposed to all the time to look for another job.
