We need a sign like that - there's one under pass (probably constructed during the stone age) which is barely wide enough for one car or truck but curved at top so that any vehicle more than 10' high won't make it. But many have tried! And, there has always been a sign posted.

We have a low railroad bridge in our area that gets, seemingly on average, one a week.

My RV is twelve feet two inches tall. That's a good thing to know!

The parkways on Long Island were specifically designed with low overpasses to prevent trucks from using them. Of course, every now and again a newbie from outside the area doesn't realize this...
The exit from the Brooklyn Bridge heading to the parkways has a pipe across it, to tell truckers, "No, no!" 🤚

Good eye, Jack, although I am not sure how many viewers understood your reference to Burma Shave.

A truck ignoring the signs and trying to drive on the NY and Conn. parkways is a monthly occurance...

There’s a similar low overpass in Durham, NC that has claimed a good share of too tall trucks.

We have a railroad trestle that narrows the road to one lane and it is impossibly low clearance. There are multiple signs warning that no trucks can pass and that they should not travel this road. To get to the industrial park they must turn at the four-way stop...not go straight. Several times a year a tractor-trailer fails to make the turn and ends up facing the trestle requiring them to back up the 1/2 mile. It's always a 'grab a beer and a lawn chair event'.

I like that the clearance signage is partially obscured by the untrimmed tree.
