Credibly promising to be irresponsible...since 2004!
I assume you've seen the appropriately named website, 11foot8.com?
It seems they could have saved people a lot of time and money if they had sprung for the 11'- 10" bridge.
The bridge actually is a hair over 11'10", incidentally. The sign understates the height, to give same room.The railroad trestle is 100 years old. The sewer main underneath is also 100 years old, and makes it difficult to lower the road.
But Mr. Munger, without government, who would build the truck-destroying-bridges?
I see that. Look on the bright side. Think about all of jobs that bridge has create for autobody repair men LOL
Why do you think the second hay wagon driver kept on going after the first one had such a bad experience? Was he afraid the momentum would spill his load?
There is a low bridge in the University of Washington Arboretum in Seattle, that is so notorious that whenever someone rents a U-Haul truck in that city the contract will have a clause in it that prohibits the truck from being driven in that park.
Also, who was filming all these? It´s like they have a live webcam where anyone can just tune in any time of the day and see "bridgenator" in action live...
You'd think Two Guys with a Truck would just shut down their Durham franchise after seeing that video.
Michael -- I think your guess is correct. A sudden stop with a load of hay (or about anything else heavy) would cause the load to fall forward, on the driver, rather than falling back, on to the road. Clever driver.
