    Couple of things I like about this one...

    Trains cancelled, yet the pictures show trains  running over the bridge...

    And my favourite one, the cops and the recovery company making a meal of it, picture shows recovery truck hooked up to the front of the unit,,, why, what they gonna do, drag the whole lot through the bridge causing more damage,,, had a few stuck under railway bridges/petrol station canopies, simple innit, let the tyres down, reverse it out, have a tyre company reinflate tyres, strap up the body and load, drive it back to the depot, repair truck and sack driver... In this case it would be even easier, it's only the trailer that's stuck, most units and trailers nowadays have air suspension which is adjustable, lowered it and reverse the thing out, simples...

    PS, I note it's a Polish trucking outfit, employed a few Polish drivers, not that we paid them any less than the British ones, just there was a driver shortage and we employed what came along, we got on video one of them leaving the depot and negotiating the roundabout just outside the gate, done it perfect, lane discipline, trailer wheels nowhere near hitting the kerb, perfect, just one slight problem, he was going the wrong feckin way round it...

    Got to say I have a bit sympathy with drivers involved in these incidents, I've driven these things and have often gone under bridges and thought "Fu#k what height was that one",,, your concentrating that much on the traffic and the size of the bit of kit your negotiating through it, it's easy to miss a height restriction...

    Nowadays it's a bit easier, get a good truck sat nav, not a £29 Tom Tom, a good truck one, about £400, keep it updated by downloading the manufacturers updates as they are e-mailed to you, this service costs about £30 a year, what the truck sat nav allows you to do is put in your trucks data; weight, length, width and height, it should then calculate your route to avoid obstacles such as bridges,,, problem is drivers don't want to fork out four hundred quid, so get a cheap one, and yip, shit happens...
