DAMAGED COVERED BRIDGE

This is what happens when motorists do not pay attention to the warning signs that are placed for their own safety. A truck tried to cross over the bridge that was taller than the minimum stated. Tore the over-head sign off it’s foundation and bent the feet & inches sign. It had to be repaired by the Twp. but who paid for this damage, I don’t know.
This is what it looks like after the repair. Notice the still bent sign above. Sometimes I tend to think that some people are just don’t pay attention to what is told to them!

Thanks for stopping by. I still don’t like this new format. Trying to get used to it!

Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

  1. Good they had that sign. I expect that the vehicle owner’s insurance would cover the damage as part of their liability policy. I had an accident many years ago, slid off an icy road and damaged a guard rail. I was billed for the damage by the county and my insurance covered it.

  2. I’ve seen trucks stuck under bridges before. A few Uhaul’s. I suppose when you are renting a truck, you should know how tall it is. And there are lots of people that don’t think about this happening, until it does!

    1. The Historic covered bridges around here have in plain view the height that can pass thru. Drivers crossing these bridges should not even attempt to go thru it, unless they know their trucks height. Some people just don’t think! It has happened a number of times.
