Bridges; The natural enemy of trucks

Bridges, the natural enemies of trucks across the world. A variety of tricks are used by bridges to lure unsuspecting trucks to their doom. Take the mislabeled road height sign for instance. At one time the clearance was 14 foot 5 inches but after years of settling and multiple paving jobs perhaps a foot or more of head room has disappeared.
