You can't fix stupid.

Here is the proof......I saw it on the back of a truck.

An Albert Einstein quote that fits this situation - " Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."

I give drivers of those vehicles more room than others, the TV commercials, portray the owners/drivers as being soooooooooooo much better than you and I. Bob

Even if you're not stupid sometimes things just don't turn out the way you planned.

I wish I had a picture to post but about 4 years ago I was staying late to unload a shipment of books. The truck was late...and when it arrived we found out why. The driver had tried to pass under a local bridge that has huge signs on either side announcing that it is a low bridge with a clearance of... less than the height of the usual tractor trailer. He ignored the signs but the truck was only a few inches too tall so rather than getting stuck, it peeled about half of the top off the trailer. When he finally arrived, our pallets were covered with splintered wood and aluminum shavings. His hydraulic tailgate didn't work either and I had an exciting hour figuring out how to get the pallets (which are very heavy) off the truck and into the warehouse. I've often wondered what he had to say when he got back to the yard with that trailer.

Nooo, the truck was in the wrong place.

Is it my eyes, the camera angle or is the trailer stopped partially on the road and blocking the traffic lane.  Sure looks like the truck driver deserves a serious fine as does the SUV driver.  Two stupids surely do not make a smart.

Most landscapers park their trailers on the road, I see nothing wrong with that, idiot in the World's Best defroster free import is at fault. Any idea how many mowers she crushed? Bob

Stupid = Economic Stimulus Program, this is more efficient than government.  New car, new trailer, new mower and we all pay more for insurance!

You wouldn't happen to be anywhere near the 11'8" bridge of YouTube fame are you?

I don't think so. I hardly ever look at YouTube and they don't actually say where it is but that certainly doesn't look like New England.

 Since the '60s Even when living in Indiana & Michigan I always looked for cars with AC - heaters were better, battery/alternator/cooling were all heavy duty and instant defog.

Maybe it just looks that way because the truck pulled to the side of the road when they felt her enter.

 

That stuff can't happen on a TV show. Her approach would have been in slow motion and she could have steered around it..... maybe.

That was the first thing i thought about.  

 

There are some good videos on that channel.  It appears that over time, the state/city has added more and more signage/flashing lights

before that rail bridge, but it still does not stop some drivers from "giving it a try".  Some folks think that "signage" doesn't apply to them.

But, physics still proves that X = X and if one tries to put X + 1 or X + 2 under X, something has to give.

Tailgate is down and unlikely she could enter if it wasn't. I see landscape guys stop and unload just about anywhere.
