    Well, in this case the section of bridge did come down. Does that tell you anything?

    Do we know that he had a choice?

    Yep, this is kind of a rare occurrence, eh?

    Yes, he did. He could have chosen another route, or refused to move the load, or had the load dismantled so that it wasn't as tall.

    He can't even do that. Federal law says that only CDL holders can teach at truck driving schools.

    The investigation will look at that.

    My guess is that if there was a better route he would have went that way.

    It could be a design flaw. Too bad the gubmint engineers are untouchable.

    If he didn't have a better route, he should have refused to move the load, or had the load shrunk.

    They could have flown the truck with its load to Vancouver, B.C. on a huge cargo plane and came South with it.
