Bridge crunched – again

Yet another truck has hit the train bridge over Wyndham Street in downtown Guelph.
Police were called to the area at 10:15 p.m. Tuesday after a tractor-trailer driver, who was heading south through the downtown, disobeyed four posted signs warning of height restrictions on the bridge, a news release said.
The 50-year-old man tried to drive his truck under the bridge, ignoring signs restricting heavy truck traffic, but the top of the trailer hit the bridge’s crash beam, damaging the sheet metal flashing, it said.Damage to the trailer is estimated at $2,000, while damage to the crash beam is estimated at $1,000, it said. The southbound lane of Wyndham Street was closed for a period of time while police investigated.
The driver, a Courtland, Ont. man, was charged with disobeying a sign.

    I really don’t get this. It is difficult to imagine that trucker’s don’t know the height if their rigs or they can’t read. Yet what other explanation could there be? Perhaps it is time for our civic authorities to seriously interview all past truckers who have made this mistake since proper signage was installed to find out what was going in in their minds.
