    I thought they already had "trucker" maps for GPSes but you had to pay extra for them.

    Don't blame the truck, blame the driver who can't read clearance signs.

  • Fizz Posted: 11/3/2009 2:05pm PST

    Wasn't that a rental truck? The GPS is just supposed to provide directions, not read the clearance signs for people.

    So, anyone hiring truck drivers? Looks like I know of at least one that needs a job.

    Seems to me the government should take over the GPS makers. This is an outrage.

    funny shit... gentlemen- learn to think...

    Epic fail. But to be honest, sometimes when I use my GPS I become oblivious to what's going on around me.

    Couldn't this much infrastructure damage be avoided on low bridges with a simple, cheap alert flasher system? Unless of course the highway dept gets a secret kick out of seeing the tops of trailers getting ripped off...

  • country girl Posted: 11/3/2009 10:01pm PST

    May be it' time to make that bridge a bit higher?

    I also heard of trucks driving into too-narrow streets and getting stuck. Seems like for some people GPS and good old common-sense don't work together...

    Yes, they do have intelligent GPS units where you can load the height, length and width of your vehicle into the system. They will even show warnings about roads that are close to trucks. These are also very handy for RV drivers.
