Probably would have made it if he slowed down a little more.

That has to be that over pass in Durham NC it happens weekly. I was at the dealer yesterday they gave me my height by measuring with a level. I sit exactly at 12'8" not saying they overlayed the road by 2" that reduces it more and they just do not change the signs. Anything under 13' I will not take the chance. It happens more offen then people think....

Seen this before, still amazes me.

Towed my rig home from a local campground yesterday with the antenna up AND went under an overpass... antenna was till there when I got to storage. Musta been a pretty high overpass..

I saw someone driving the other way with their antenna up. I couldn't come up with a way to tell them!

I saw a guy pulling out of the campground once with his antenna up. If he and his guests would not have been so rude to me and my family the night before, I would have flagged him down and told him about it. Oh well. Remember, it pays to be a good neighbor.
