Apparently speed is the solution for a successful crossing.

I noticed the warning lights didn't start flashing until the coach was right under them. Lot of good that does.

It must happen often as they have at least two different cameras pointed at that bridge at all times to record these events.

They need to suspend a log at the 11'7" mark about 100ft before the bridge.

Check out the FAQ. Looks like there are plenty of warnings before the bridge - not sure even if you stopped everyone and said "are you ok"...they would still keep going....

Yeah, and it's not like these U-Haul and Budget rental trucks don't have clearance warnings. I rented a 26' U-Haul truck this past weekend and it had 12' clearance warning stickers everywhere, even when you looked into the side view mirrors!

Maybe some discreet see through ones for me, on the mirrors.

I just found this site today. It was hard to watch a few 5ers loose their a/c's and roof vents.
