    August,

    Folks around here think they can stop just as fast on a wet, snowy,
    or icy pavement, as they can on dry. They likely got their drivers
    license or CDL out of a Cracker Jack Box.

    The one I think of is where the truck gets stuck under the bridge,
    because the driver wasn't paying attention, or ignored the sign on
    the bridge height.

    One incident showed the truck trailer wedged under the bridge, and
    the driver was asked by the policeman what happened (like it wasn't
    obvious already). The driver replied "I was hauling a bridge, and
    ran out of gas". <G>

    I've also seen where RV's etc., go under these low bridges, and it
    skims the stuff off the top...similar to what happened in the song
    by C.W. McCall, "The Ballad Of Wolfcreek Pass"...as follows:

    "Right in the middle of the whole damn show, was a real nice tunnel.
    Now, wouldn't you know??!!"

    "The sign said clearance to the twelve foot line, but the chickens was
    stacked to thirteen nine."

    "Well, we shot that tunnel one hundred and ten...like gas through a
    funnel, and eggs through a hen."

    "We took that row of chickens off slicker than the scum off a Louisiana
    swamp."

    ... You have the bridge, Number One. . . I have to go number two!
