Default Most Accurate Road Sign Ever

I just saw this on I Am Bored:



Wish we had something like that around here... Pretty clever.

LOL that's pretty accurate. They need one of those on the Gardner Expressway in Toronto. So many transports spill their loads on that one overpass before downtown...

They Couldve used that a couple years ago when the car carrier hauling brand new jeeps hit the bridge in Cressona Pa


I found a couple pictures of said bridge but none of the car carrier

That's actually a really good idea IMHO.

that's a normal sight on the Gardner in Toronto. I don't get why they don't either raise that overpass or implement some sort of warning system.

Same situation is seen every couple of months in one of the main avenues of the city. And it always happens at rush hour.

somehow, I think even if a truck driver did hit that sign, he would somehow still hit the bridge. It's like people who take an exit off the freeway doing 60, when the sign says "exit 35 MPH" and after they've rolled their vehicle, they're shocked that they crashed.

Lol, I did that once. I didn't see the 35mph sign and slid off the side of the ramp sideways in my ZX2 and luckily nothing broke. I thought it was hilarious but my gf at the time did not.
