GPS's are GREAT... provided that a LOT of 'common sense' is used along with them. IMO

I just hope nobody got hurt.
Yep, all it takes is a moment's distraction. I once tried to drive the car in the garage forgeting about the bikes in the bike rack on top of the car . . DOH!

A few ago the north tunnel at talledaga was 12ft with a incline at the exit. We went there after the race and watched the drunks tear units off the roofs. Security would tell them about this but whay the hay.

I put the remote out of reach if I have the bikes on my truck. But knowing me, I will open the door via other means, get in the truck and promptly back up.

This whole thread relates to the fact that we have to pay attention all of the time, especially while driving our RVs. As I get older, that is harder and harder to do....stuff happens.

BTW folks, lots of bridges are 'curved or sloped' at the ends. So where are we supposed to assume the bridge measurement was taken? I try to drive through the tallest segments. FWIW

A few years ago, out in California (with the car), was on a squirelly road that was a short cut to the coast. Later in the week back where the road started, was talking to someone who said a couple times a week, a semi gets hung up on the road because of sharp curves. Thats where the GPS takes them (ours did too). Wayne

Seriously this is no accident. It's just pure STUPIDITY. You have to be an absolute MORON to not see that coming. Even if the bridge had no posted signs you have to have at least an ounce of brain that tells you "hmmmmm I don't think I can clear that".

THIS could at least have helped.
