    Just a heads up, my cousin is a truck driver and mentions that the bridge height warnings aren’t always correct, it might be posted that you’ve got enough clearance, but at some point some street work was done and a new layer of asphalt was put down and no one ever updated the signs and that can cause issues like this.This is incredibly strange too, it seems like this is an interstate or state highway, and that looked to be a “normal” sized semi. Those bridges should be made to allow that.

    My uncles a truck driver as well, he’s had one bad incident when under a bridge they had a temp road surface. They kept telling him to go under the bridge and he wasn’t having any of it. With that road surface it added 4-5 inches! The curve of the bridge in that vid is the main cause. Fecking lucky it didn’t hit the cab.

    It looks like the Meadowbrook Parkway on Long Island which prohibits commercial trucks, as does any road called a Parkway in NY.

    Based on the road sign, this is on Southern State Parkway by East Meadow/ Levittown NY. Looks a lot like Garden State Parkway, NJ

    Not that anyone else will care about this but – The exit numbers have an ‘M’ in front of the number – I thought only the Meadowbrook did that. Then again, I don’t live there anymore so maybe I’m misremembering.
