The account posts photos of drivers doing stupid things on the road, such as what happened this morning in Richmond.

A truck with an oversized load got stuck beneath the Cambie Road overpass on Highway 99 this morning – blocking an entire lane on a busy, rainy day.

How does this even happen? Truck drivers know the heights of the overpasses and the heights of their loads.

Do your frigging math.

Good grief. We’re lucky the truck didn’t take out the overpass.
