Three Blind Mice, Three Blind Mice. See how they run, See how they run.

They all ignored all the low bridge signs. Now they're looking for work just to pay their fines.

Three Blind Mice, Three Blind Mice.

wtf.gif WOW! That's a terrible sight to see. Watch those bridges and read the road atlas if it's an unfamiliar route you're driving.

Are they parked in the Cresonna SAPA lot?

If so, I bet I know the bridge they tried to get under...less than a mile away. Blind and Dumb.

That's why they say hope is not a strategy. I'd bet anything that all three of them knew it was going to be super tight and noticed the bridge looked really low but went for it anyhow.

I am familiar with the bridge you're talking about, but I honestly don't know the story behind these trailers. They are parked at the Knight Terminal in Carlisle, PA.

I can't even begin to tell you how many trucks I've seen ignore all the signs before that bridge in Cressona that you referenced.

I posted this as a reminder to the new folks in here. Your GPS is a tool, not a dictator. It does not have a brain, a pair of eyes, or any common sense. You have all three, and you must use them. Sometimes you will have to do the very opposite of what your GPS is telling you to do.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

The other day I was hiking 135 acres of land that was available and I was using my phone as a GPS. Not only was the location off by quite a bit most of the time, but it was showing that I was facing in the opposite direction. After fumbling around in the woods for a little while, wandering around aimlessly trying to figure out where I was and where I was supposed to be going, I just said the heck with it and headed back to the road and dug my compass out of my backpack. I had no problems navigating after that.

Advanced technology is not always the best way to solve problems. It's great when it works like it's intended to, but how often is that, really? Not often enough.

Here it is; the Green Monster RR bridge in Cresonna PA, on PA-183.

The town painted it bright iridescent green in hopes it wouldn't be hit. There is a tin-can alarm setup on either side of it...giving plenty of warning to over-height vehicles needed to safely stop.

Darwin Award Material.

Wow! I was at a delivery on Monday in NY, and there was an 11' 10" RR bridge on the road near this warehouse. It looked as if it were eye-level with me in the cab.

Are you sure that those aren't part of Knight's new aerodynamic low drag trailer experiment?

Here is a famous 11 foot 8 bridge. We MUST pay attention to signs.
