Take Care Following (Rental) Trucks

Take care when following box trucks (especially rentals) approaching low overpasses. You want to give yourself plenty of stopping room.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Stray, thanks for the insightful tip! As a native Tarheel, it gave me great pleasure watching that video in the hopes that most, if not all of those drivers were Duke Blue Devil fans...you know what they say Duke + Basketball does not = good at math. LOL!

The yellow lights don't start flashing unless they detect something that won't fit. There is more info at http://11foot8.com. People probably were talking on their cell phones, did not see the lights (STUPID!!!).

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Saw something about this on the news a few months ago. People in homes have round the clock cameras set up to catch the carnage. Tell you what that has got to be a butt puckering moment for any truck driver that has come to a sudden stop trying to go under it.
