What's the height limit here?
If it isn't marked
And it is on an interstate in Massachusetts, the grandfathered clearance is at least 13'6".
Anything newly built or overhauled has to be at least 16', with an extra 1.5' for pedestrian overpasses.
Oooh, came right off.
I think we had one of these before -- it's the rack that the dumpster or whatever sits on, and which drivers occasionally forget to lower before driving off -- but I don't recall if the previous one actually broke off of the truck?
