It gets worse the longer you watch.

Saw that earlier, what were they mounting or trying to drive over that caused the truck to seem to want to launch through the roof?

I think they were hitting another part of the ceiling?

Based on my many years of professional truck driving experience, they really needed a lot more speed as they entered the parking structure. A far more powerful engine could also have helped.

I'm assuming they were trying to turn around? And in doing their best Austin Powers impression, ended up hitting the ceiling beams. But I have to ask. Why didn't they just back out?

Lack of driving skills would seem to answer that question. Not sure where this took place but a truly inventive lawyer might just find their local DMV responsible for professional neglect?

And the free car wash made it sparkle.

I liked how the passenger kept checking the rear tire...
They never did figure out that they were hitting the CEILING BEAMS, not a speed bump or something.

I kept asking myself, 'How is this going to get *worse*?' and then it did!

IMO, people should only be allowed to drive a vehicle one or two class sizes bigger than they take the road test in unless they re-qualify in a larger vehicle. Most people's driving skills stink whether or not they're distracted.

I wanna ride with Speedy!!



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

Four. I could empty them where I loaded and unloaded.
