When it comes to low clearance bridges and overpasses, we never cease to be amazed at how some professional truck drivers think they can outsmart them or squeeze underneath them anyway.Being involved in an “under blunder” of this kind is a preventable accident and the kind that helps you lose a truck driving job really fast.

Gav and Dan recruit the help of stunt driver Kyle Weishaar, as they attempt to shave the top off a moving truck with a simulated bridge overpass– all in amazing 4K slow motion.
The result? Costly damages to the truck and any goods being hauled, potential harm to the driver and countless other drivers on the road, and fines for driving on a truck-restricted road.Before you set off, make sure that you know your vehicle height and width by heart.
Please note that your truck’s weight can vary slightly according to what type of load you are hauling. By adhering to routes tailored to your load and trailer specifications, you can avoid fines and low bridges.Last but not least, make sure you always check for traffic signs and other warnings when you approach a bridge.
