To Much "Bulk" In The Freight

I had an image for today already...but I just had to post this one.
I was on the way to see a customer this AM and this is what I see down the street.
You would think these guys and gals would learn the height of their rigs....
This guy went under a very low underpass and there is one more only block from this one.
Things like this happen all to often under these old and low underpass's.....

Nikon D200
1/160s f/10.0 at 46.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

It seems weird to me.. the trailer looks like it's no higher that nay other trailer, the streeet looks like any regular city street.. if there's a low overpass on that stret, you'd think this would be a prety common occurrance?!?!

I wish I could be in the cab 3 seconds after he hits the overpass. I bet that

Wow, at first I though he had overloaded in the middle of the trailer and it gave way. We had that happen to a load of cement on a flatbed in our warehouse once. The bottom rails had cracked and it just bent to the floor. Crazy thing about alloy is that it popped back up as soon as we figured out how to get it off the trailer without ruining the load.

Nice PJ image, Mike.
