The Toughest Bridge In the World!

  08/30/2017


Back in the day cars and trucks weren't as tall, so some of those old bridges are still standing because of train tracks that go on top of them. It's apparently an extreme amount of work to raise or lower some of these old bridges because of the amount of work and money that has to go into redesigning the train tracks. So because of this, these old bridges stay where they are and trucks that are too tall continue to drive underneath them, not adhering to the warning signs. When this happens, like seen in this video, trucks crash and literally lose the top of their trucks.

The bridge in this video is famous for this very reason. It's called the "11 foot 8 bridge" in Durham, North Carolina. It's also reported to have been around for at least 100 years and it's not going anywhere anytime soon because of the high amount of work that would be involved in raising the bridge. For some reason, even with warning signs and all, trucks continue to try to drive underneath this bridge causing ridiculous accidents that are just a giant FAIL! What do you think about this?
