Watch a crane truck almost break the famous 11-foot-8 bridge

You’re assuming the crane is perfectly level at rest. It could be on slight incline at rest.

There’s specific “truck” GPS apps and devices which take vehicle height (and weight etc.) into account.

You’re assuming I was serious.

Did you really let out a sigh of relief or a sneaky one?

Perhaps the headline should read “Crane driver with mobility aspiration fails bar exam”

It’s absolutely the driver’s fault, but you can’t fix stupid. You can modify the infrastructure to mitigate stupid.

Interestingly, that one has not come up too much in previous BB posts. But I do approve of the idea!

Yes. They have also underestimated the amount of mitigation necessary.

I suggest we just get rid of all vehicles that can’t fit underneath that.

Alternatively, set up tear-shredding spikes triggered by a laser overheight sensor.

Yeah, like that will stop the kind of idiot this bridge exists to test for.

Maybe not, but at least they’ll get those few extra inches of clearance.

Your point is obscure.

I meant something more anthropomorphic, where the bridge is a character and everyone reacts to him (I’m assuming it’s a he for some reason) the way they react to the real bridge. “It’s all your fault!” “Why aren’t you taller?!?”

Ah the joys of replying on a mobile device. I don’t exactly remember, but it is likely multiple orifices let out some relief (perhaps not all at the same time).
