* There is a bridge in the United States called the [[https://maps.google.com/maps?q=gregson+street&hl=en&ll=35.999059,-78.909899&spn=0.000931,0.002064&sll=35.98773,-78.891106&sspn=0.118619,0.264187&t=h&hnear=N+Gregson+St,+Durham,+North+Carolina+27701&z=20 11 foot 8 Bridge]], a railroad bridge with low vertical clearance. Drivers of large vehicles frequently fail to take heed of the big yellow warning signs and the warning lights triggered by their overheight vehicles, and the roofs get sheared off in spectacular fashion.

There is even [[http://11foot8.com/ a website]] dedicated to the videos of these crashes.
