Matt Soleyn reports that around 8:50 a.m., a bus from Fairfield University was about a half-mile before the Fenway exit inbound:

Trying to backup on Storrow Drive East in rush hour. At least it didn't hit an overpass.

A bus driver who decided, what the hell, and plowed right through one of those CARS ONLY signs discovered just in time that the BU Bridge inbound would not let him pass. Naturally, at rush hour, this was a bit less than optimal for all the drivers behind him. Or as Eddy S. tweeted at 6 p.m.:

Been in the same spot for

Shortly after 9 a.m., the looming BU Bridge helped the driver of one of those big tour buses suddenly realized that maybe those signs at the entrance to Soldiers Field Drive were for reals and he probably shouldn't have gotten on the road.

J. Alain Ferry reports. Fortunately for the drivers behind him, he was able to pull over into one of... Read more

Near Storrowing on Storrow Drive in Boston

Christopher was among the commuters who had plenty of time to ponder the issue on the ramp to Storrow Drive from I-93 this morning, when a truck driver suddenly realized that, hey, that sign wasn't fooling.

Storrowed truck peeled back on Soldiers Field Road in Boston

State Police report that shortly after 1 p.m., the driver of a box truck became the driver of a storrowed box truck thanks to a low-hanging bridge on Soldiers Field Road inbound, near where it turns into Storrow Drive.

As a result of the driver's reading problems, one lane had to be shut until the newly shorn truck could be removed.... Read more

Rental truck stuck on Storrow Drive in Boston

Roving UHub photography Anthony Macchi couldn't rove very far around 11:30 this morning thanks to the driver of a U-Haul truck that suddenly realized he or she wasn't going to come out of the Storrow tunnel unscathed.

"Thought we were in the clear after the 1st," he writes.

Stuck truck on Storrow Drive in Boston

A truck driver with cat-like reflexes managed to avoid a full storrowing around 10:30 a.m. Michael Cotrone was on hand to record the scene and, who knows, sell commemorative copies to the driver.

A truck driver got an introduction to the immutable nature of Storrow Drive bridges and overpasses tonight at Fiedler Footbridge eastbound and now there's debris everywhere, a truck with a newly storrowed roof peeled back like a can of sardines and a driver who probably wishes he were someplace else.

Almost stuck truck at Storrow Drive entrance

GM2059 shows us a near-Storrowing around noon at a Storrow Drive entrance. Guess there's no question this time whether or not there's a warning sign in place. The State Police cruiser on the left is blocking the road so the driver can back up, of course.

Truck on Storrow Drive
Truck driver

Roving UHub photographer Raymond wasn't doing much roving around 7:30 this morning thanks to the driver of a box truck who decided those "CARS ONLY" signs only applied to other truck drivers, not him.

Drivers no doubt appreciated his help in motioning them to form a single lane to get around his vehicle, parked in the right lane inbound, just past the Cambridge Street entrance... Read more

But they don't run into abutments and go "ow!" OK, not much of a joke.

Around 11:45 p.m. yesterday, KiloWhisky reports, a bus driver decided that "CARS ONLY" sign obviously didn't refer to him and tried to get on Storrow Drive inbound at Fenway. He didn't get far before realizing the error of his ways. The ramp was closed while State Police helped guide... Read more

Truck on Storrow Drive

Tommy Von was among the motorists who had to just sit there as State Police cleared a path for a truck driver to slowly back his stupid truck off the road shortly after 10 a.m. But on the bright side, at least the guy didn't splatter the contents of his truck all over the road by slamming into a bridge or something.... Read more
