Barfmaker: That's awesome. But why wouldn't he have just backed through the gate, was he afraid he'd scratch his truck?
Ponzholio: "They've got to be able to stop that thing," he said.Or, you know, and this is just a crazy thought, you could try to not run a red light to get ahead of a raising bridge...
Mad Scientist: He was being attacked by a mad loganberry killer.[3.bp.blogspot.com image 400x300]
SlothB77: He said he tried to back up, only to find the trafic arms pinning him in.Dude, driving through the traffic arm is cheaper, less costly and less potentially lethal than sitting there and letting the bridge counterweight crush your truck (and possibly you inside).
rga184: While I agree that this guy was kind of a dumbass on multiple counts, I have to question the design of any type of bridge that has the potential to crush any passenger car when it opens.
Russ1642: "Hello, is this CAA? Yeah, I've got a flat. How soon till you can be out here to fix it?"
SirTanon: rga184: While I agree that this guy was kind of a dumbass on multiple counts, I have to question the design of any type of bridge that has the potential to crush any passenger car when it opens.This. Does it not strike anyone else that this is a HORRIBLE way to design a bridge??

StrikitRich: So a Canadian gets hit by a block on a bridge while in Canada? This has what to do with Florida exactly?
