Often it's the truck after the overweight truck that is in trouble. This is an example. See also the Skagit River Bridge (except that was overheight).  One of the bridges in my area crumbled under a heavy truck leaving a hole for the next car to come along.

The bridge probably had too many Americans on it.

Same thing happened here in Chester County PA.  Some doink from Jersey driving a delivery truck took out a covered bridge.  Drove the whole way through.

On one of the main north south highways in Madagascar, they had a bridge with a 20 ton limit.  Problem, most trucks there had 40 ton capacity.  Every truck just kept going over it figuring that it was the problem of the person behind them.

Well if one had stopped, all the rest would have piled up behind him and that would have caused everything to shut down.

/local fire chief where I used to live ignored weight limits

I see your farked-up picturesque covered bridge and raise you this - Burlington Bay Skyway closed.just today.

You want to see how a bridge can get farked up by one dumb-ass truck driver?

Take a look at this.

This moron was driving on a bridge with a superstructure with his truck bed raised.

There are warning indicators on this particular bridge that warn drivers of vehicles if they are over-height.  He not only ignored these, he ignored all the motorists that were honking at him!.

This is a major artery from US to Toronto.- plus a major port has essentially been closed.  Gonna cost millions!

This closure will probably last past the weekend.  I'm glad I'm not on that commute.

I just had a thought, what if terrorists destroyed bridges not through bombs, but through creatively destructive driving? What would stop them from deliberately doing something like the drunk in that article and causing millions of dollars in damage and causing temporary economic chaos?
